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 side, which will grow by 153,000 workers, to 1.43 million people, in fiscal 2010.
ENLARGING THE FEDERAL PAYROLL ISN'T JUST WHAT THE MACHINE WANTS, IT'S JOB NUMBER ONE!
TO ENLARGE THE TAX-GETTERS TAKE AND ENRICH THEIR COMRADES IN AFSCME AND THE NEA AND THE SEIU.
THESE GOVERNMENT WORKERS' UNIONS AND THE CHICAGO MACHINE AND THE ALINSKY-INDOCTRINATED AND SOROS-FUNDED LEFT COMPRISE "THE AXIS OF TAXES".
AND THEY WILL DESTROY THE USA IF WE LET THEM.
WE CAN STOP THEM IN THEIR TRACKS THIS NOVEMBER.
- AND WE POSTED ON IT AGAIN IN FEBRUARY OF 2008 - ALMOST EXACTLY TWO YEARS AGO, AND STILL WAY BEFORE BEFORE ANYBODY ELSE.
