Federal hiring. 101/day, 7 days a week.
 
And we wonder why we are broke?

http://news.investors.com/politics-a...te-workers.htm



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.

Hey, somebody has to shovel all of the BS out of the White House ?

Maybe you should take it up with the "job creators". I hear they had a very good year last year.

Unlike the private sector, the public sector has been losing jobs throughout Obama's term. Its a big reason why the overall unemployment rate is where it is.

143,000, gosh, that sounds like a lot. How many federal workers were added/dropped during Reagan's term?

Apparently not, since there are now more employees in government than when Obama took office.

Federal employees?

As I've said when Romney was blustering about creating jobs, this is the only way a President can have a direct effect of "creating" jobs. Now, I am not saying this is a bad thing, but when a poltican says they are going to "create jobs", this is what they mean.

He's trying to give Obama credit for cutting state workers.

I'm trying to say that you guys don't know what to complain about. But as long as you're complaining, that's what seems to count. You complain about the unemployment rate, even though it is mostly at the expense of govt workers, which you would seem to like. But its not the right govt workers. I know, you'll always have something.

You think Obama raising federal employment 6.5% in 4 years while at the same time our federal deficit is sky rocketing into lunar orbit is a good idea?

You guys that defend stupid shit like this only because it's Obama is just as comical as us nitpicking.

According to Politifact 90-95% went to DOD, Homeland Security, Veterans Affairs, and DOJ.
