The cost of big government

Today's financial exploration of the cost of all that government, courtesy of the Center for Fiscal Accountability. Some highlights (click on images to enlarge):

Read the full report here. Residents of Alaska, the state with the lowest government burden (federal, state, and local), start earning money for themselves after July 11th, while those living in almost bankrupt California have to work another six weeks or so (until August 23rd) to pay for their "fair share" of government. And those living in New Jersey and Connecticut are still working to pay for their bloated governments (until September 6th and 7th, respectively).

Note that the biggest and most expensive chuck of the cost of government is the federal government and all its agencies. So much for limited federal government.
