leave a comment »

I found the original suggestion at http://www.emaxhealth.com/24/23009.html

“2003-2004 … $ 35.2 million in tax money
2002-2003 … $ 36.6 million in tax money
2001-2002 … $ 12.2 million in tax money
2000-2001 … $ 38.9 million in tax money
1999-2000 .. $ 59.5 million in tax money

1997-1998 … $ 42.1 million in tax money”
