Ten Thousand Commandments: An Annual Snapshot of the Regulatory State, by Clyde Wayne Crews, June 28, 2006 (42 pages, PDF): “In the Fiscal Year 2006 federal budget, President Bush proposed $2.77 trillion in discretionary, entitlement, and interest spending. Although those costs fully express the on-budget scope of the federal government, there is considerably more to the government’s reach than the sum of the taxes sent to Washington. Federal environmental, safety and health, and economic regulations cost hundreds of billions of dollars every year—on top of official federal outlays.”
