1hour 55min to Pay your [Federal Income] Taxes.

Given that state & local spending is about 3/4 of federal and unfunded liabilites ($528000 per household according to USA Today) are both unaccounted for in that chart, I think it’s probably over half of the day.

I’d like to see this chart reproduced for different income levels, and expanded to show types of personal expenses. How much time for food, housing, savings etc.
