Tax rates as a percentage of GDP
Debt as a percentage of GDP
US - 65%
Canada - 28%
Our taxes are high - we're just not paying them - yet.
Cripes that makes me wince. I look at my 8 year old daughter and wonder how in blazes her generation is going to muster through the crap we're dishing out right now.
I'm doing what I can do lay a solid foundation for her, though. She's bilterate and I'm currently scoping out instructors for her next language (Mandarin).
I wish I could've gotten her into Mandarin first (it is by far a more difficult language than Spanish or English if for no other reason that you have to learn an entirely different writing system, too) but whachyagonnado!?
