Happy COG Day, America!
    #1706194 - 07/11/03 04:30 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

Today, July 11, is this year's "Cost of Government Day" in the United States of America -- the date in the calendar year when the average American worker has earned enough money to pay off his or her share of the burdens of federal and state government. (Don't ask me how many days more you will have to work to cover municipal property taxes and regulations, though.)

Americans now work less than half the year on behalf of themselves and their families. They will work 87 days to cover the cost of federal spending, 43 days to cover state and local spending, 39 days to shoulder the cost of federal regulation, and 24 days to pay for state regulation. All told, that's over four months to pay spending, and another two months to cover the regulatory burden.

So breathe a sigh of relief, Americans. Starting tomorrow and continuing to the end of December, you are finally working for yourselves (and your municipalties). I'd say that calls for a celebration!

ps -- If you think there's nothing to celebrate, just remember that Canadians and Europeans will have to wait quite a while longer to celebrate their respective Cost of Government Days. That should make you feel better.

I think my COG day came a little earlier since I don't pay any income tax, just Self-Employment (Social Security) and sales taxes.
