13. You'd better try a reading comprehension course
My numbers are the INCREASE in spending in those areas. They don't, and will not, add up to 100%. The story being told is that spending has increased drastically in just about every category. Also, my numbers are total spending by the government. Cut it how you want, but we are all taxed for that total spending so that's all that matters.

I'm just trying to make the point that we can't keep harping about spending on wars when it is so easy to point out that spending in all other areas besides the military has increased greatly. I'm worried about 2012.
