Government Transparency

There should be 1 Web Site that shows where all Federal Tax Money is spent every year.

 

Just like a business, the investors (taxpayers) deserve to know how their business (government) is performing.

 

The expenditures should be broken down as:

Medicare/Medicaid $XXXXXXXXXXXX

Social Security $XXXXXXXXXXX

Defense Spending $XXXXXXXXXXX

etc.

 

The Taxpayer could click on the above category and get specifics within that category.

 

As Abraham Lincoln said in the Gettysburg Address, that the "government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

 

Let's remember that it is the "people" for whom we should be transparent and accountable.
