I am writing in response to the articles on where our tax money goes. I was shocked to see people's salaries listed. It might be public information on a computer, but I didn't see a need to print it in the newspaper.
I'm more interested in seeing where my tax money goes for Social Security and I'm sure a lot of other people are, too. Like how much people on welfare receive in benefits for a year, including food stamps, heat assistance, medical assistance, cable, cell phones, property tax money and who knows what else.
The government should stop the programs that are luxuries and not necessities to live and also control more of the programs that are out there. If they would do that, maybe they wouldn't have had to increase the amount of money that comes out of my check for Social Security.
