Federal Budget

Not that this is the first time in history that a president has released the full budget for a fiscal year, but it is very easily accessible this time. If you are interested in viewing the budget you can go here: http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/budget/Overview. Its about a 4 MB file so it doesn't take very long to download. Thats all I have for today. If you find anything interesting about the budget feel free to let me know. 


Here is a reported federal budget breakdown for 2011

  6. Ahhh! Who picked out those colors? I can't tell Medicare from net interests! Is the government spending 8% on jobs? If so, that's low, considering that that is probably the primary problem with the US right now
