2009 War Resisters League's US Income Tax Pie Chart

Each year War Resisters League analyses federal funds outlays as presented in detailed tables in “Analytical Perspectives” of the Budget of the United States Government. The analysis is based on federal funds, which do not include trust funds — such as Social Security — that are raised separately from income taxes for specific purposes. What you pay (or don’t pay) by April 15, 2009, goes to the federal funds portion of the budget.

The pie chart here highlights 51% average annual military spending based on the research over 20 years. The Obama administration is releasing the 2010 budget in late March and the new analysis will be posted on WRL's website in April 2009. Over the summer Congress will debate the budget details and is mandated to pass a final budget by October 1, 2009.
