Received this from the White House today...

Good afternoon,

Have you ever wondered how much of your own tax dollars actually go to support foreign aid? To support education? Well, now you can find out – and you might be surprised. In his State of the Union Address, President Obama promised that this year, for the first time, American taxpayers would be able to go online and see exactly how their federal tax dollars are spent. So today, we’re announcing the first-ever federal taxpayer receipt.

Check it out: Just enter a few pieces of information about your taxes, and the taxpayer receipt will give you a breakdown of how your tax dollars are spent on priorities like education, veteran’s benefits, or health care.


David Plouffe

Senior Advisor to the President

P.S. In case you missed it, be sure to check out President Obama’s speech laying out his plan to reduce our deficit by $4 trillion over the next twelve years:
