Taxes Americans Pay

Today, Americans work 185 days to pay taxes and comply with the regulatory costs of government at the federal, state and local levels. In other words, the cost of government consumes 50.4 percent of national income.

This year, Americans will work:
• 84 days to pay for all federal spending
• 43 days to pay all state and local spending
• 37 days to pay the costs of federal regulations
• 23 days to pay the costs of state regulations

Ain't it just grand? The wonderful, COSTLY, government.

By the way, if I'm right, that pic is from Stranger Than Fiction. I thought that was a good film.
