    1. Education

    2. Defense/Military

    3. Our Pocket's

    4. The Lower Class

    5. Government Employees

    6. Technology/Research

    7. Public Transportation

    8. The Environment

    9. Health Care
    Of the things you listed, I'd rank them in order of priority:
    1. Technology/research
    2. Public transportation
    3. Education
    4. Health care
    5. The environment
    6. The lower class
    7. Our pockets
    8. Defense/military
    9. Government employees


    One very important thing that was left off the list was our communications infrastructure, such as the national broadband initiative...so I chose to lump that in with technology/research. If that had been included, it would probably be #1.

    Also, I'm not sure what you mean by "the lower class." That's pretty vague. I support providing health care and education to those who can't afford them, but since health care and education were both separate options I'm assuming that's not what you're talking about. Could you be more specific - are we talking about unemployment benefits? Food stamps? Subsidized housing? The Earned Income Tax Credit? My ranking of that item could go up or down depending on what we're talking about.

    Re: What is the best place for our tax money to go?

    So for me, I would have to say education. The very very very close second is #3 In Our Own Pocket's.

    The reason education is the single most efficient method per dollar spent is because it directly attributes to lowering birthrate's, decreasing poverty, lowering crime-rate, increasing number of graduate's, promoting more competition, and countless more. I remember my economic's professor a year ago proposed that education literally fixes all aspects of poverty in an area.

    If you have a poor, highly populated, dilapidated area and you place high quality education facilities in the area it would by every standard drastically help every aspect of that community and you never know, even the country as a whole. It is a well established fact that birthrate's decrease when the community is more educated, and the decrease in birthrates decrease's the crime-rate and any number of negative impacts of a poor community.
