The High Cost of Government

What They Don't Tell You:

For every $1 billion spent by the U.S. government, the cost to the average household is about $10. There are about 286 million souls in the U.S or about 100 million families. $1 billion spent divided among 100 million households comes out to about $10 per household.

Some Examples:

HR 2620: Fiscal 2002 VA/HUD. Includes $30 billion for the scandal-ridden and unConstitutional Department of Housing and Urban Development. (Passed 336-89 on July 31, 2001, roll call #297.)
Cost: $112.7 Billion or about $l,085 per household.

HR 2500: Fiscal 2002 Commerce-Justice-State. Includes $3.5 billion for federal meddling in state and local law enforcement - a growing danger! (Passed 408-19 on July 18, 2001, roll call #248.)
Cost: $41.5 Billion or about $399 per household.

HR 4578: Fiscal 2001 Interior. Boosts spending by 26%. National Endowment for the Arts up by $7 million; includes $1.2 billion to buy more federal land. (Passed 348-69 on Oct. 3, 2000, roll call #507.)
Cost: $18.8 Billion or about $181 per household.

The U.S. National Debt:

The U.S. National Debt is more than $5,950,000,000,000 and increases at a average rate of $843 million per day!

Each American owes about $20,765.39.
