Most tax money goes to past, current wars

How many of us know what the U.S. government is doing with the money we pay in taxes? I was surprised to learn from the Friends Committee on National Legislation that 37 cents of every dollar we pay in federal income taxes go to pay for current and past wars. At the same time, education, diplomacy and help to the nearly 100 million people living in poverty in this country get only pennies on every dollar.
