    550,000 local government jobs are gone, like GOP advocates, since the Great Recession started. For August, overall government employment declined 17,000 even though the State of Minnesota went back to work.

    Employment Situation Summary

    In a GOP/Tea Party-free, compromise environment, then even the striking Verizon employees would have more likely been employed, the 17,000 government job losses might more easily have been gains instead.

    And as for the 550,000 government jobs taking spending out of the stores: Then there is what GOP has been contending, having said "No!" to everything else!

    "Crow, James Crow: Shaken, Not Stirred!"
    (GOP take economy into Go-It-Alone without government help, Like Yellow-Hair at Little Big Horn! No Reinforcements needed, unlike in Govenor's Texas!)

    thread title is misleading, to say the least. Government has done nothing to 'get out of the way', which is why job growth is anemic.

    The good part of this report is that government jobs are going down, while private sector jobs are in many cases starting to creep up (slowly, but up none the less).

    If government really were "getting out of the way" then Obama Care would have been abandoned, Justice Department lawsuits against Boeing and Gibson guitars would have been dropped and the new EPA regulations would have been rescinded. Since none of that happened? The Obama Administration is still "in the way" and they are still responsible for what's happening with the economy.

    I wonder if Rick Perry will take credit for creating half of the zero new jobs?
