  •  The numbers at your link reflect (5+ / 0-)

    estimates made before the sequester began taking effect.  Also, these numbers are not explained.  As long as the population rises each year, and as long as increasing numbers of baby boomers are retiring each year, particular categories of the federal budgets rise automatically.

    There are also questions about the definition of some of the categories used by this link, e.g., what does spending on "Welfare" mean? what does "Protection" mean, and how does it differ from "Defense"?  Who is included in "Public Servants"?

    I have had questions about this link before when it's been used in diaries and comments to make a particular point.

    "In this world of sin and sorrow there is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am not a Republican." - H. L. Mencken
