America’s Expenses, Income & Debt for 2016 – 2017

For fiscal years 2016 and 2017 (October 2016 – September 2017), the U.S. federal government spent $3.98 Trillion to pay its bills (I.e. Military, Social Security, Medicare/Medicaid, Education etc.). Here’s how much of it was spent:

Medicare/Medicaid (Dept. of Health & Human Services)  – $1.1 Trillion

Social Security  – $1 Trillion

Dept. of Defense  – $568 Billion

Dept. of Treasury INTEREST ONLY on our Debt – $457 Billion

Those four “items” alone account for roughly $.79 for every $1 spent by the federal government.

The other roughly $.21 combined spending goes for everything else including Education, Veterans, Homeland Security, Housing & Urban Development, Transportation, Energy, Agriculture, Environmental Protection.

Income

The federal government also collected roughly $3.31 Trillion from taxpayers (I.e. Your paycheck).

Here’s the full Department of Treasury report for both expenses and income.

Debt

Finally, over the years, the federal government has borrowed money to take care of its needs. Currently, it owes over $20.4 Trillion on its “credit cards” and “loans” combined (national debt).

Here is a real time total of what the federal government owes and who it owes it to.

As stated earlier, in the 2016 – 2017 fiscal year, the federal government used the taxes we paid to pay $457 Billion in INTEREST ONLY on the total amount it owes.

Here’s how much the national debt has grown since 2000:
