    I saw an interview with the lead government oversight guy and he apparently has been saying for years we are headed toward disaster with our out of control spending and national debt…but no one is listening to him. It was an interview on Glenn Becks show.

    For a country without state funded healthcare, you certainly spend a large proportion of your budget on health (I’m guessing that Medicare is health as well).

    What is income security?

    I have no idea what “income security” is, to be honest.

    Yea, health would be medicare, medicaid, and probably the healthcare for all the govt. workers. The rest of us get squat, it’s terrible. We are a socialist country for almost everything else – Fire, Police, Libraries, Schools, Parks, roads, – god forbid we get decent healthcare as well.

  4. Is “income security” worker’s comp? Or maybe government pensions?

    Very interesting and scary charts.

  5. What about our president’s salary? Is that under employee?
