    Since His First Day in Office Barack Obama Has Hired 101 New Federal Employees on Average Each Day​

    Federal Workers Make Twice As Much As the Private Sector​


    USA Today

    Since Barack Hussein Obama took the oath of office in January 2009 he has created on average 101 new federal employees each day.
    Andrew Malcolm at InvestorÂ’s Business Daily reported:


    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.

    Federal workers have been awarded bigger average pay and benefit increases than private employees for nine years in a row. The compensation gap between federal and private workers has doubled in the past decade.

    Now comes a new poll revealing that Americans know whatÂ’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.

    This is truly appalling. Tax receipts are now $2.9T - which is the level of federal outlays in 2008. If we had just held federal spending flat (just like individual incomes have Not Grown during this period), we'd have a balanced budget.

    Obama has grossly inflated federal spending as a share of GDP in order to enrich his crony basis at the expense of working taxpayers.

    Your analysis is flawed.

    The appropriate analysis is to look at federal spending as a percent of GDP. Obama has overseen The Worst Recovery Ever. His addition of federal employees has increased the federal burden on the economy. Adding federal employees during periods of high economic growth is not a fair comparison.
    (not that anyone expects you to be fair.)

    Government workers do on average make more than private sector workers, because government workers, on average, have jobs that require higher levels of education. You have to pay rocket scientists more than telemarketers - its not rocket science.

    But government workers do make less than private sector workers with the same job description - but they tend to have better benefits and more job security. That's common knowledge. If you want higher salary but less security - go private - if you will work for less but want better job security, go with the federal government. Duh.
