The U.S. National Budget - Clear and Simple Explanation

I received The Literacy Tribune today and found their article: "A Close Look at the United States Budget" by Cathay Reta to be a clear and understandable explanation, without any political bias, of the current U.S. Budget.  The Literacy Tribune is The Adult Learner Network Newsletter of United Literacy, a non-profit organization that "strives to bring literacy and technology together to better serve and support adult learners and local literacy organizations throughout the United States."

A budget is not only a financial tool for the financial order of a family, organization, business or government, but it is also an expression of the values and priorities of a family, organization, business, or government.  Does our national budget reflect the values and priorities that our nation should have?  What do you think?
