What You Actually Paid For Last Year

by Amanda M. Fairbanks

October 6, 2010
Think of it as a taxpayer receipt. As Andrew recently pointed out, let's say you made $34,140 last year, of which $5,400 went towards federal income taxes. Of that, a whopping $50 was spent on K-12 education. And another $30 went toward college loans for poor students. Third Way, a self-described moderate think tank, insists that all taxpayers  get such a receipt (PDF).

How might you suggest a reordering of our spending priorities?
