Which dept of the Govt spends the most money?
Take a guess before you look at the link
Wow, I got it right. I thought HHS or DOD, and picked HHS. Although I am not sure since I never worked in the accounting section of a government agency, I do not think it is like doing a quarterly statement in a civilian company, where profit is required for survival. The federal government can make money appear and disappear with the wave of a magic wand.
The problem ISN'T the budget. It is the trillions spent off-budget including the "black" budget.
I believe HHS budget includes Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. As such, expect this trend to continue for a long, long time.
Medicare and Medicaid come under HHS, but not Soc Security.
Correct! The SS Administration administers the two Medi budgets but they are separate budgets.
... but, I couldn't help myself. When you wrote the title - Federal Budget - I immediately thought: one big MESS.:laugh:
"Look what you got us into this time 'Ollie (Barry)'". :laugh:
May be time to look at this agian...
Note it doesn't include money invented by the Fed.
