What is the Government Spending BookSubmitted by JacciC on Mon, 05/26/2014 - 21:36
Hey fellow DPers,
I wrote a book (under the pen name A. Citizen) and self-published it on Amazon.com. It's called, "What is the Government Spending?"
What it's about: I took the appropriations bill passed by Congress, and did a line by line breakdown of every thing they appropriated money to without all of the legal mumbo-jumbo. I included all the dollar amounts with running totals for each department and the overall bill. I even included the roll-call votes at the end.
Why I wrote it: Too many times there is bickering among people about Government spending, and it seems as if no one actually has the exact numbers. I wanted to make that possible for all of us out there that don't have the time or the resources to do this kind of analysis.
It's 99 pages and $3 Trillion of spending line items that most of Congress didn't even read.
