It’s hard to comprehend the spending by the federal government over the last year. The numbers are so large, the spending programs announced so quickly, one after another, that sometimes we need to step back and take a look at the big picture. When we do, it’s quite terrifying, especially when we realize that the Obama administration and Congress have several more large programs to pass.
A video that places these programs and spending in context is available from StopSpendingOurFuture.org. It’s short and to the point. The companion website, a joint effort of The Heritage Foundation and Americans for Prosperity Foundation, provides additional information and background.
