An interesting table from Mother Jones

Note that foreign aid is 0.85 percent of the tax bill. Recall that this is how the federal tax is distributed. While the federal spending in 2010 is $3,721 billion, state and local government spending is $3,209 billion all of which presumably is domestic in nature. Thus foreign aid represents less than half of one percent of your tax dollar.
