Federal money spending in 2015

Got a picture about 2015 total federal spending: 3.8 Trillion. The interest on debt is more than the total of the following:

  1. science, energy& environment, housing& community, transportation,
  2. Education, transportation, housing&community
  3. Food and Agriculture + science + energy
  4. Veteran’s affairs + science + energy
  5. or any other combinations you want to put together.

The interest on debt is the number four spending in the federal spending. This is a huge concern to me

I remember one number very well when I was still a graduate student: “one day of Iraq war costs more than a whole year spending of National Science Foundation”.
