    You may have noticed some economic difficulties across the country in recent years among family, friends, neighbors, colleagues. One sector is doing quite nicely, however, under Barack Hussein Obama.

    In the 1,420 days since he took the oath of office, the federal government has daily hired on average 101 new employees. Every day. Seven days a week. All 202 weeks. That makes 143,000 more federal workers than when Obama talked forever on that cold day in January of 2009.

    Under Obama the total federal workforce has surpassed two million for the first time since the first Clinton term, now sitting about the 2.2 ,million level.

    Now comes a new poll revealing that Americans know what's going on. A majority of Americans believes government workers make more money than private sector workers, according to the new Rasmussen Reports poll. Sixty-one percent of private sector workers believe that.

    Surprisingly, Republicans, independents and Democrats are united in agreement that government employees have it better than private sector workers although, predictably, Dems are slightly less sure.

    "The federal workforce has become an elite island of secure and high-paid workers, separated from the ocean of average American workers competing in the global economy," according to a report this year by the Cato Institute...........

    Evidently to obama, "spread the wealth around" also means the transfer of taxpayer money into the hands of government workers.

    Shocker.

    So what does that work out to? Less than a 1% increase?

    It works out to power and control for votes, and a bankrupt economy for all.

    Jonestown principles in place while Kool-Aid sales and drinkers soar?

    im sure Obama is involved in all interviews and hiring procedures for every government department. if this were true, he must be superhuman to perform 101 interviews a day, put them through the hiring process and follow up all while running the country. thats impressive.

    yes seeing a stock market rise from 6500 to 13000 is running the country in the ground. seeing positive job growth for over 40 months is running the country into the ground. seeing positive GDP for the past 40 months, is definitely running the country into the ground.

    can you name anything positive the GOP has done over the last 4 years?
