The price of government

Here's an interesting article from National Review Online written by Ernest S. Christian and Gary A. Robbins.

The authors detail how much $1 in tax revenue and $1 in spending really costs. Here's a sample:

  • The secret is beginning to leak out — but only barely. Voters are still being misled and government is still taxing and spending on the false assumptions that $1 spent on a bridge-to-nowhere costs $1 in tax revenue, and that $1 in government tax revenue costs the private economy only $1.

Wow, I always thought it was moer like 50% more not 150%.
