I did the math on this just for shits and giggles. Comes out to about $12k a person more or less. This is going to change from year to year based on the annual operating budget of the federal government of course. So Obama and other high income earners are paying far, far more than their share and I would guess that schmucks like us are probably paying less than $12k.
