Where's Our Tax Money Going?

Sure, people hate taxes — but maybe they wouldn’t if they knew where the money went? Well, we found out, and now we hate taxes even more.

In this episode, Jon explores how American tax dollars are actually spent – and he learns a shocking amount of the money goes directly to middlemen and private companies. Our panelists discuss why there’s not much accountability and how little value taxpayers get for their dollar. Then Jon heads to DC to talk to Rep. Rosa DeLauro, the Chair of the House Appropriations Committee, about why Congress isn’t using its power to get a better return on investment for taxpayers.
