OUR American tax dollars are sent to the top of the federal government.

OUR APPROPRIATED HARD EARNED tax dollars are COUNTED, SLICED UP, DICED UP, GRANTED, TRICKLED DOWN, SPENT BY AND SQUANDERED AT EVERY LEVEL OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT.

SQUANDERED, definition, to spend or use something precious in a wasteful and extravagant way.
