…also known as the Cost of Government Day,
August 12, 2011- Cost of Government Day Has Arrived!
In 2011, Cost of Government Day falls on August 12. Working people must toil 224 days out of the year just to meet all costs imposed by government, a full 27 days longer than 2008.
In other words, in 2011 the cost of government consumes 61.42 percent of national income.
Remember that every time you hear any politician telling you about “paying your fair share”, and the dog that doesn’t bark in the night.
While you make plans for the weekend, ask also, How Much will the Obama EPA Increase the Cost of Government?
Cap and Trade would have increased the Cost of Government by three additional days.
Is anyone surprised, then, about the stagnant economy and the near-10% unemployment rate?
