I downloaded this receipts and outlays from the Finical Management Services.

http://www.fms.treas.gov/mts/mts.xls

If you total all of 2010's outlays we come up with a total of ~$3,480B, while on your site we have a total 2010 budget of $3,600B.

What am I missing here?

Taking their figures for "My Share" of Discretionary Spending, and adding it to "My Share" of Mandetory Spend, typically does not add up to their figure for "My Share" of All Spending.

Example:

Based on an income of $85,000
My Share of All Administration of Justice Spending = $357.16
My Share of Discretionary Administration of Justice Spending = $996.53
My Share of Mandetory Administration of Justice Spending = $19.87

$996.53 + $19.87 = $1016.40 not $357.16

My Share of All Agriculture Spending = $169.81
My Share of Discretionary Agriculture Spending = $133.01
My Share of Mandetory Agriculture Spending = $205.74

$133.01 + $205.74 = $338.75 not $169.81

I could go on, but all of the "My Share" numbers appear to be wrong.
