Financial Ignorance is Expensive.

Are you in control of your own finances? Yes, of course you are – you know exactly how much money you have and you decide how to spend it. Some of us are better organized than others, but we all are in control of our finances. All of them except taxes! They are our money too and we must control how much taxes we pay and how much money the government spends. Government is employed by people (like you and me) to spend our taxes for our needs. People of the United States must decide where their money should go.

Power and money sooner or later corrupt any government. The more money government controls the more power it gains. Finally a country reaches the point when the freedom and prosperity of the nation is in jeopardy. We must limit the government’s expansion by controlling its spending. It is our obligation to us, to our country and our children.

The first step toward this goal is information. This web site is a single source of the consolidated information about the United States income and expenditures. We collect the information from the variety of sources, verify it and publish it in a format that is easy to understand.

What our government does not want you to know:

  1. You do not need to be an expert in finance or accounting in order to understand the government budget. After all, most of the government bureaucrats, who create the federal, state, and local budgets, are neither.
  2. Only small portion of our tax money is going to army, security, roads, parks, emergency, and safety. Much bigger portion of the federal budget is allocated to pay for government itself, their lobbyists and supporters, and all kinds of entitlement programs.
  3. You are paying for your neighbor. Almost 50% of the U.S. citizens do not pay taxes at all, but they do vote. The government’s bureaucrats are using your money to preserves their seats and retain their luxuries.
