At $10,000 per year, is the U.S. Government Worth It to You?

February 4th, 2008

The latest federal government budget or $3.1 Trillion is hard to comprehend unless reduced to bite sized numbers. With about 300 million U.S. population, this amounts to $10,000 per person, man, woman and child. Does the U.S. government provide you personally with $10,000 per year in services? Is it worth $40,000 per year for a family of four?

Or maybe you rationalize that someone richer is paying for it. Your family doesn’t pay that much. So why worry?

If anyone out there gets $10,000 per year (per person) in value from the U.S. Government, I’d like to hear in detail what services you’re getting that are worth that much. And then I’d like to know what portion of that you pay personally.
