    One hazards to guess that most of those gubmint jobs were created in the Death Spiral States.

    ...Two factors determine whether a state makes this elite list of fiscal hellholes. The first is whether it has more takers than makers. A taker is someone who draws money from the government, as an employee, pensioner or welfare recipient. A maker is someone gainfully employed in the private sector.

    Let us give those takers the benefit of our sympathy and assume that every single one of them is a deserving soul. This person is either genuinely needy or a dedicated public servant or the recipient of a well-earned pension.

    But what happens when these needy types outnumber the providers? Taxes get too high. Prosperous citizens decamp. Employers decamp. That just makes matters worse for the taxpayers left behind.

    Let’s say you are a software entrepreneur with 100 on your payroll. If you stay in San Francisco, your crew will support 139 takers. In Texas, they would support only 82. Austin looks very attractive.

    Ranked on the taker/maker ratio, our 11 death spiral states range from New Mexico, with 1.53 takers for every maker, down to Ohio, with a 1-to-1 ratio....

    non-adjusted Total Government adjusted
    20,676,000................................21,928.000
    Nov 2012
    22,438,000................................21,962,000

    Difference
    1.7 million................................34,000

    rather a strange difference in the non-adjusted numbers, isn't it?
    So either way, there has been much hiring in government one way or the other.

    Hey, a job's a job.

    If the so called, "job creators" aren't stepping up then, somebody has to fill in the void.

    ^^^ The heartbreak of economic illiteracy on parade.

    For his next trick, he'll suggest that the gubmint print $1M bills and give one to everyone in the U.S. (except for the evul millionaire-billionaires who make more than $250K per year).

    Ths might be interesting if it were true. Your source Breitbart provides no source for his numbers and it clearly is not the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Either admit it is a damn lie and you have been fooled, or provide the actual numbers and BLS sourcing for this claim.

    BLS time series for Table B-1

    2012--Seasonally adusted total non-farm employment (in thousands)
    June--133,063

    July--133,244

    Aug--133,436

    Sept--133,568

    Oct--133,706(P)

    Nov--133,852(P)

    Increase Nov over June: 789,000

    2012--Seasonally adusted total government employment (in thousands)

    June--21,928

    July--21,946

    Aug--22,004

    Sept--22,014

    Oct--21,963(P)

    Nov--21,962(P)

    Increase Nov over June: 34,000

    P : preliminary
