Those multi-million dollar homes in Chevy Chase, Md aren't going to buy themselves.

A lot of people know that the US uses a lot of tax money on military budget so I think this is a good historical record of how that money was used by the government.

The US spent $60 billion rebuilding Iraq after the 2003 war. There is virtually nothing to show for the money. Most of the money seems to have been stolen by US defense contractors.

That's what the wars are FOR. Printing more money and spreading it around. Also, tax money isn't enough to pay for the interest on the US debt, so no, tax money doesn't do anything. Anything that gets done comes from additional debt at this point.
