For that last couple of years I have kept an eye out for the Cost of Government Day as calculated by the Americans for Tax Reform Foundation and the Center for Fiscal Accountability. The Cost of Government Day 2009 Report is now available. Today, August 12, 2009, is this years Cost of Government Day. This is 26 days later than 2008.
I am sharing this report and link because it is an interesting look at the current tax and government landscape in the U.S. The overall views expressed in the report of on the websites above are those of the Americans for Tax Reform Foundation and the Center for Fiscal Accountability and are not necessarily my views or the firm's view.
