Cost of Government Day Sin Tax Party

On July 12th, Americans for Tax Reform Foundation and the Cost of Government Center will be releasing its annual Cost of Government Day Report. The report calculates how many days the average American must work to pay for the full costs of government spending and regulation at the federal, state and local levels. This year, Americans had to work until July 15th to pay for the burden of government.

As is tradition, we will be observing the passing of COGD at this Thursday's Sin Tax Party by enjoying the products that are heavily targeted by bigger government. "Sin taxes" are levied on everything from distilled spirits to restaurant meals - adding substantially to their costs, which are eventually passed on to consumers in the form of higher prices.  Come celebrate finally paying off the burden of government by enjoying these extra-taxed goods that bear the strain of the growing Nanny State.

The Annual Sin Tax Party will be held Thursday, July 12th. Please email sintaxes@atr.org for further details and to RSVP for the event.  RSVPs are required for admittance.  Members of the press should RSVP to John Kartch at jkartch@atr.org.

We hope you can join us in celebrating the passing of another year's Cost of Government Day!
