Cost of Government Day

According to the Center for Fiscal Accountability, New Hampshire residents worked 226.8 days to pay for the cost of government this year.  So go ahead and celebrate.  Everything you earn after August 14th is technically yours to keep.

Who would have thought they’d let you keep 138.2 days worth of income from a years worth of work? What a bargain.  And in return you get….

Don’t feel too bad.  Connecticut is the worst in the nation. They have to wait until September 15th (260 days).  But that’s probably because they have all those casinos (That NH doesn’t have) to help relieve the tax burden, and all those extra jobs to collect income and sales taxes from taxes (NH does not have)–which probably explains why their unemployment rate is only….well its….actually….. 8.9%. … And why their budget deficit is only….well…about 734 million dollars.
