87. If you add both, your federal AND state income tax
Edited on Mon Aug-17-09 12:34 PM by liberation
... in most states you end up with a tax rate similar to a lot of European countries. On top of that you have to add health care costs, etc. So basically you end up paying more money for the same services.

Salaries are higher here though, and sales tax lower. So if material stuff is your thing, the USA is still the place to be.
