    Here is the scenario....

    You are the President of the United States and you have a very agreeable Congress so you virtually get to set the Federal budget.

    What percentages would you give each of these things?

    -Social Security
    -Health Care (Medicare, Medicaid, etc.)
    -Education and Training
    -Veteran's Benefits
    -Natural resources and environment
    -Agriculture
    -Science and Technology
    -Defense
    -Unemployment/Welfare
    -Interest on National Debt (requires at least 8.5%)
    -Transportation
    -Administration of Justice (courts, police, etc.)
    -Foreign affairs
    -Community and Regional Development
    -Energy
    -General Government (requires at least 1%)

    Remember it has to add up to 100% and the minimal Interest on the National Debt and the General Government costs must be met.

    I hate doing things like this, because it intails defending my opinion on things, which I dislike doing because the arguments go nowhere. But... my T side won't let me walk away from this without applying numbers :D

    5% Social Security
    10% Health Care (Medicare, Medicaid, etc.)
    10% Education and Training
    3% Veteran's Benefits
    7% Natural resources and environment
    3% Agriculture
    10% Science and Technology
    8% Defense
    3% Unemployment/Welfare
    10% Interest on National Debt
    5% Transportation
    2% Administration of Justice
    3% Foreign affairs
    4% Community and Regional Development
    10% Energy
    6% General Government
