Colorado Cost of Government Day

According to Americans for Tax Reform, today (Saturday, August 21) is Colorado’s official Cost of Government Day (the national Cost of Government Day was Thursday):

This is the day on which the average American has earned enough gross income to pay off his or her share of the spending and regulatory burdens imposed by government at the federal, state, and local levels.

The cost of government at all levels consumes about 64 percent of the average Coloradan’s gross income (compared to the national average of 63.41 percent). There’s a less-than-inspiring thought for the day. If that doesn’t help focus your energies on advancing liberty and limited government for the upcoming fall elections, I’m not sure what will.
