The proposed budget for the federal government is #3.73 Trillion. The population of the US is 312 million. The federal government alone spends $12,000 for each man, woman and child in the country. That's $48,000 for a family of four. This is insane. Who pays? The affluent and future generations. Anybody who works at all loses %14.2 of the first dollar they earn to FICA and medicare.
New York State spends an additional $7,000 PER PERSON! For a family of four, the state and federal governments spend $76,000!
