That's about what the fed, state and locals governments spend per American per hour 24 hours a day 365 days a year.
It does not matter whether you are sleeping, eating, in church, at work, on vacation, retired, or unemployed, watching TV or in the bathroom. You do not have to worry cause the wheels of government are turning (Ka'ching) and someone is making sure they are spending that $2 per hour for you.
If Obama gets his way, that $2 will increase to $3 per hour in the next 8-10 years!
[Jeez $2 per hour is about $50 a day or $1,500 per month which is more than the average social security benefit check!]
