These calculations from the Tax Foundation estimate that all Americans will paid $4.8 trillion in taxes to all government entities in 2015 and spent just over $4 trillion on food, clothing, and housing in 2015. The $4.8 trillion is about 31% of the total national income of all Americans. Thus, in reality, we are paying over 30% of our earnings to the “government” each year, a government that is inept, wasteful, crony infested, and generally incompetent.
From the beginning of Bush’s first term to the end of Obama’s seventh year in office, the national debt increased $13,213,630,160,947.51 which comes out to $112,219.57 for each of the 117,748,000 households that were in the country as of September, 2015. As we said before, taxation with representation is not so great either.Maybe if we had gotten something for our individual $112,219.57 debt burden, we could justify this type of government spending. But our roads and bridges are still falling down, our public schools still fail to educate our kids, our border is still not secure, we are no safer from terror attacks than we were seven years ago, Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security are still hurtling towards financial insolvency, government operations are wasteful, inefficient, and ineffective, etc. $112,219.57 for basically nothing in return. If government was a new car, we would have had it recalled as a lemon decades ago.That will do it for today’s insanity. An ever growing and crushing debt burden, a never growing and crushing tax burden, and an ever growing disgust with government and the politicians that operate it. And we are just getting warmed for this month’s political class insanity.
