It depends on how you look at it. A lot of spending gets moved around so it can be hard to track, for example some military spending isn't strictly allocated to the department of defense but it works its way there through other programs. Looking at the 2012. for entitlement spending there is mandatory spending, things like medicare and medicade, but there is also entitlement spending that goes on in funds that are allocated say to the department of health services. Without actually going through each departments books you can only give a rough estimitation. Here is a very rough guidline, it completely ignores how the departments are allocating spending.
Mandatory entitlements (Unemployment, Medicaid, Medicare, SS) : 2,009 million dollars about 56% of the 2010 Federal Budget
Medicare: 12 %
Defense Spending (including overseas operations): 663 million dollars or 18%
Like I said earlier, these figures are probably lower than they should be because I am only using what the Feds have allocated specifically to those programs. Any monies that end up being used for those programs via other departments isn't shown.
Also, a nitpicking point. Anyone that says half our budget is used on defense is either lying or doesn't understand that they are simply looking at the discretionary budget. Of the federal budget of 3,551 million dollars, 1,378 of discretionary. Military spending is part of the discretionary budget. It is a trick politicians and overzealous activist often like to use to confuse and mislead the public. The truth of the matter is that both military and entitlement spending is way beyound what is sustainable.
*I've seen other figures that show this around 25% of total federal budget.
Most federal mandatory spending is spent on entitlements.
Every year, money from the federal budget is allocated for spending on the environment. For instance, in 2013, the government spent 2.2 billion dollars on the environment, which amounts to 6 percent of the federal budget.
In Canada, none. Education is the responsibility of the provinces.

About 1% of the federal budget is spent on welfare (2% if food stamps are included).

There is insufficient information. You need to specify what your total budget was and either how much you spent or saved. You have not provided your total budget.
According to the last budget a tiny amount of the total US budget is spent on foreign aid. About 0.1 or 0.2% is the figure. In 2009 the total foreign aid was around $48 billion. President G.W. Bush submitted to Congress a total budget request of $3.1 trillion.
20Given Paula's monthly budget, the percentage of expenses spent on insurance can be determined by subtracting all the other expenses from the monthly budget, which leaves you with the anoint spent on insurance.
The average american spent about 4% of their budget on apparel in 2003. This percentage has significantly decreased since 1990 when the average was around 14%.
FEMA spends about 6 percent of its budget on national emergencies. :)
to workout the effective relationship its budget/spend*100 = %. Where the % is 100 or less this means you are at or under budget (on budget is the target aimed for) where the % is greater than 100 you are spend is OVER budget.
9%. Everyone could enjoy about a 10% tax reduction simply by paying down the federal debt, which now stands at about 40% of GDP, but is expected to exceed 60% within 10 years.
