What is the Government Spending Money On? Would you like to know what the federal budget looks like, without the political spin? Author and Attorney Val Butler of Midwest Almanac Publishing has created an index that highlights key provisions of President Obama and Paul Ryan's budget plans. The ebook, “The Obama-Ryan Budget Index”, gives readers 'a government spending breakdown' as proposed by Mr. Obama and what spending priorities should be, as advocated by Paul Ryan in his budget plan.
The information in the index is divided both by federal agency and various topics in Mr. Obama's proposed plan and by the topics presented in Mr. Ryan's plan. The index allows readers to see raw data on the tax cuts and spending initiatives that Mr. Obama is proposing and related counter-proposals from Mr. Ryan. Another unique feature of the index is that it provides the page numbers of where the information appears in the original documents, as well as links to the original documents themselves.
The beauty of the index is that it cuts down 355 pages of text in half. The index is organized in a way that allows readers to easily zero in on budget areas of particular interest to them. The information is also separated into topics such as:
Cuts in Military Spending
Efforts to cut government waste
Tax Reform Initiatives
Social Security Spending
Education Spending Initiatives
The goal of the ebook is to allow readers to compare and contrast the Obama and Ryan proposals on federal government spending in a less dense format than originally provided. Our hope is that by making this budget information more widely accessible to the public, it will help citizens make better informed recommendations to our elected representatives on issues of great importance to us all.
Val Butler has written several ebooks on issues relating to the government and public policy in the form of short “ePamphlets”
A Summary of The Supreme Court Affordable Patient Care Healthcare Decision
An ePamphlet on Pork 'n Earmarks: What's Congress Serving the Public?
An ePamphlet on How Congress Makes Laws
An ePamphlet on Understanding The Federal Budget
