Your taxes are filed, and Uncle Sam will be reaching into your pocket book in the next few weeks. So where does all that money go? And is it doing anything to help pay off our $19 trillion national debt?
The Daily Signal published a fascinating article last week highlighting nine charts that depict our country's financial situation. You can check out several of them below, but be warned -- it's not for the faint of heart.
1) Where'd it go??
2) Spend Like the Feds
3) Debt Interest Will Consume All Tax Revenue
4) Your Share of the Debt is Skyrocketing
The picture is bleak, to say the least. That's why an Article V Convention of States is so necessary. Congress has shown itself unable to spend our money responsibly, so it's up to us to get our nation's finances back on track. A Convention of States can propose constitutional amendments that address wasteful spending, taxation, and the national debt. It's the Founders' solution to an out-of-control national government, and it's time to use it.
