Overview

Revised and Updated to Include the Probable Effects of the Great Recession, the Government Stimulus, and President Obama's Health Care Overhaul

Federal debt will affect your savings, your retirement, your mortgage, your health care, and your children. How well do you understand the government decisions that will end up coming out of your pocket?

Here is essential information that every American citizen needs—and has the right—to know. This guide to deciphering the jargon of the country's budget problem breaks down into plain English exactly what the fat cats in Washington are arguing about. Where Does the Money Go? covers everything from the country's exploding federal debt to the fact that, for thirty-one out of the last thirty-five years, the country has spent more on government programs and services than it has collected in taxes. It also explores why elected leaders on both sides of the fence have so far failed to address this issue effectively and explains what you can do to protect your future.

    GREAT MUST READ

    This book has literally changed my life as I understand so much more about our tax dollars, government funded programs, and so much more. It's a great book that all Americans should read so that we understand the serious issues with the baby boomers retiring, and where that leaves the rest of us. It's written in such a way that it's actually an easy read too, if you can imagine such a topic being easy to read about. I feel so much smarter about the U.S. economy now, and since reading it, I've been inspired to read more about oil and learn more about our economy overall. I'm buying more of this book to share with friends.
