In tax season, most of us think more about getting our forms in on time—and getting our refunds—than about where our tax dollars actually go.
It’s probably no surprise that a significant portion—24 cents out of every dollar—of your taxes go to the military. But where those dollars go from there should be a national scandal.
Out of those 24 cents, just 5 cents go to our troops. But 12 cents go to corporate military contractors.
Every year, far more money goes to Pentagon contractors than to our troops.
