How much did you pay for nuclear weapons? No one likes tax day. The paperwork. The anticipation of a return. The shock of owing more. None of it is fun. Least of all paying for wasteful programs that do little to nothing to keep the American people safe. Like the plan to spend $1 trillion on new nuclear weapons over the next three decades. It turns out each of us, on average, paid about $90.82 in nuclear weapons taxes in 2015.
