The Cost of Government

Americans worked from the first of 2008 until today, July 16, to pay the full costs of federal, state, and local government spending and regulatory costs. Now, we can start to work on all those other pesky bills--you know, like food and clothes and lodging. As Will Rogers quipped, "It is a good thing that we do not get as much government as we pay for." Or as Mark Twain asserted, "The only difference between a tax man and a taxidermist is that the taxidermist leaves the skin."

I think we are rending unto Caesar much that is not Caesar's.
