2023 10 03 | The Data Prove Government Is Spending Too Much **
"Be­tween 2013 and 2022, ag­gre­gate an­nual spend-ing by the 50 state gov­ern-ments, ex­clud­ing fed­eral funds, in­creased 51.7%. To­tal an­nual fed­eral spend­ing rose 69.4% dur­ing the decade, more than three times as fast as the 21.6% in­crease in the rate of pop­u­la­tion growth plus in­fla­tion. If gov­ern­ment grows faster than this rate, then it is grow­ing faster than what the av­er­age tax­payer can af­ford.

Had the fed­eral gov­ern-ment lim­ited the growth in spend­ing to a max­i-mum of the pop­u­la­tion growth rate plus in­fla­tion dur­ing that decade, in 2022 the fed­eral gov­ern-ment would have spent $1.6 tril­lion less than it did, re­sult­ing in at least a $200 bil­lion sur­plus. If the fed­eral gov­ern­ment had done this over the past two decades, the na­tional debt would have in­creased by less than $500 bil­lion in­stead of $19 tril­lion."
