Tax money from the Federal Budget
I think you may find that the money comes from an excise tax on aviation.

It is a huge pot and the Federal Gummint would really like to get their mits on it for other uses but are not allowed to.

A breakdown here.

In EASA land they just "nickel and dime you to death".

The FAA AATF is forecast at 16.3 billion for FY 2019.
