    What is the "source" of your chart? The OP references the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Washington Post.

    You gotta' love it. The Republican party used to stand for small government, balanced budgets and individual rights. George W. Bush expanded the size of our federal government by 15%, doubled the national debt and listened to our phone calls for seven years.

    Probably not, but I'd put my money on the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    Righties only believe government reports when they support their political agendas. Apparently BLS does not...
