Understanding for sale

The sheer gargantuan bulk of the federal government is awfully intimidating for any earnest citizen who tries to stay informed, and the same is true of the annual federal budget.

There’s a book out about the new federal budget that seeks to help folks get a handle on all that money and all that government. The People’s Guide to the Federal Budget is published by the National Priorities Project. It seeks to make the budget clearer.

More information is available at http://nationalpriorities.org/en/budget-basics/peoples-guide/. The paperback volume sells for $15.
