    • On November 16, 2012, by Coachella - Bill Summary: After we pay our taxes, because of this bill, we would be entitled to a "receipt". A piece of paper showing us how our government spent our money, line by line. We would receive this receipt in the mail via the United States Postal Service. Say that you paid $5,000 on taxes last year. You would get a receipt saying that: $1,020 of your money went to Social Security $620 went to Medicare $380 went to Medicaid $290 went to paying Interest on our National Debt $220 went to our Operations in Afganistan and Iraq $200 went to our Military Personal $70 went to our Veterans etc etc a Total of 24 Spending Categories (lines) Do you think any Potential Costs of this bill would out way any Potential Benefits? or vice versa? I'd like to hear someone else's thoughts and opinions on this small bill.. despite their not being much to debate.
