Today on Your Call: What do we need to know about the federal budget?

On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with National Priorities Project researcher Mattea Kramer about her new book, A People's Guide to the Federal Budget. The US government plans to spend $3.6 trillion next year. Where does the money come from and how is it spent? And who receives the largest portion of federal funds? Join us at 10am PST or leave a comment here.  How much do you know about the federal budget? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.


Mattea Kramer, senior research analyst with the National Priorities Project
