    Economic policy: Spot the socialists | The Economist

    BCA Research produced this fascinating chart in its latest research note which showed the growth in public sector employment in the first four years of recent Presidencies. As you can see, it has contracted under Barack Obama, as it did under Ronald Reagan; the real "big government" types were the two Bushes.

    Take out state and local government that has had to cut jobs because of the economy and federal jobs have risen.

    This keeps getting thrown out there by the left but it is disingenuous best.

    Obama will be signing a executive order bypassing Congress in order to create a entire Bureau to help bolster education for black students in order to help them.
