Americans for Tax Reform publishes s a "Cost of Government Day" report every year, which calculates how long the average American must work to pay for the full costs of government spending and regulation. The 2011 version just came out and it isn't encouraging.
Since President Obama has been in office, the 'Cost of Government Day' has fallen halfway into August. This is fueled largely by explosive federal spending—taxpayers now work 103 days, nearly half of the total cost of government, just to pay for federal spending.
