The era of big government has returned with a vengeance, in the form of the largest federal work force in modern history.

The Obama administration says the government will grow to 2.15 million employees this year, topping 2 million for the first time since President Clinton declared that "the era of big government is over" and joined forces with a Republican-led Congress in the 1990s to pare back the federal work force.

Most of the increases are on the civilian (not private sector) side, which will grow by 153,000 workers, to 1.43 million people, in fiscal 2010.

The expansion could provide more ammunition to those arguing that the government is trying to do too much under President Obama.


OBAMA TO HIMSELF: " I have no clue what I'm doing"

 -- The U.S. may lose 824,000 (private sector) jobs when the government releases its annual revision to employment data on Feb. 5, showing the labor market was in worse shape during the recession  (which Obama  misunderstood and mishandled) than known at the time.

The lies continue, and some still drink it up like thirsty dogs in the desert...To get elected, Obama declares that he will cut taxes on 95% of the people, but now in office, the opposite is happening, as he has proposed a $3.8 Trillion dollar budgets, with so much government spending...

This level of spending is unsustainable, but don't tell that to the Dem leaders, as they will find more ways to tax you and bring down your standard of living.

What a giggle!  Michelle and me are doing fine!
