    You have spent the last 231 days earning your gross income for government use. From here til the end of the year, the rest is yours! Congrats!!!

    FYI, two years ago CoG Day was July 17. 8 short years until all the money is the Guvs!

    I wonder what the CoG date will be when the Bush tax cuts are allowed to expire?

    I think the spending will be the same. The government just gets more income when the taxes get raised. They won't spend more. *snicker*

    Can you show me how you calculated that my tax payment this year will be 231 / 365 of my earnings?
