Hurray! Cost of Government Day Has Arrived!!
According to the Center for Fiscal Accountability, August 12 is our new "Cost of Government Day!" How exciting!! That means that the average American has to work from January 1st till today to pay the cost of government...that's a full 24 days more than last year. But wait, it gets better! That means that the cost of government is currently consuming almost 62% of national income.
Hmm, if they get Cap and Trade passed AND Healthcare "Reform," will I have to work two years before I get any take home pay to pay for the government?
