#1025: Guess how much GDP the government consumes now?

According to this, in 2006 our government consumed

36.5% of the US Gross Domestic Product.

Now, in 2000, the US GDP was about $10 trillion, and I know it's more now. But using the $10 trillion figure for a moment, that would mean that in 2006 the US government confiscated $3.65 trillion dollars from the pockets of taxpayers.

Ludicrous!

...yes, that's all I've got today. Sorry.
