    Government workers feel no economic pain - Washington Times

    This is one of the many reasons we hear so often that the 'stimulous is working.'

    It kept gov workers in the money, even though Barry said 90% of the 'jobs created' would be in the private sector.

    Its also why we are in such trouble, the gov spends freely money it doesn't have, and makes sure if you are in gov you get paid, and to hell with you if you aern't.

    You mean those government workers who still have their jobs, right?


    The states are shedding workers like crazy, right now...thus exacerbating the problem, of course.

    State workers are not Feds, are they.

    No, but they ARE "Govt. workers" are they not?

    Note the title of this thread?



    If you meant FEDERAL workers, perhaps then you ought to have made that point more clearly.

    Why do you bother posting if all you intend to do is continue to do is prove what a raging asshole you are?

    Perhaps you need to argue with the Washington times, its their title.

    you quote that as fact, when in reality it is just an opinion that is "included" in the article
