Salt in the Wound

Enlighten, who apparently believes that no horse is too dead to beat, reminds us that New Jersey [is] Scraping By On $60 Billion.

By the way, that $60 billion in spending costs us $70.1 billion. You might wonder why, and, as usual, Enlighten has the answer. New Jersey gets back 57 cents for every dollar paid into the federal coffers, so the $13.4 billion in Federal Spending actually costs us $23.5 billion.

Thanks for reminding us that we live in a tax-and-spend hell.
