The nonpartisan Tax Foundation says that this year, U.S. citizens will pay more than $4 trillion in total federal, state and local taxes.

That sum “is $152 billion, or 3.9%, more than they will spend on housing, food, and clothing combined,” says the tax research nonprofit.

Moreover, a greater percentage “of government benefits now go to pay for those same basic expenses of low-income Americans,” it says.
