You may not know this, but appropriations bills in the fiscal year 2010 contained 9,499 earmarks worth $15.9 billion. Leading this spree of irresponsible spending were Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss) and Senator Daniel K. Inouye (D-Hawaii). Combined, according to Taxpayers for Common Sense, these leaders among earmark recipients secured $890,023,850 in 2010.

Follow this link to see how much you contributed to 2010 earmarks and what percentage your income bracket paid.

Here is something else you may not know. In February of 2009, Barack Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, otherwise known as the “Stimulus package”. Early estimates had put the stimulus package at $787 billion. The most recent estimate by the Congressional Budget Office is $75 billion more, putting the total at $862 billion.

Follow this link to see what your share of the economic stimulus package is.

And here’s one more. Mandatory funds in the health care law are estimated at $105 billion. Mandatory spending is controlled by separate laws other than appropriation acts and these mandatory funds could possibly remain available to Obama and his administration to spend even if Republicans were able to defund the health care law.

To the right of any three of these links is a list of taxpayer calculators dealing with various projects our tax dollars are being spent on.
