Obama Doubling Federal Employees

Under the direction of the Obama Administration and Congress, the number of federal employees is set to double to over two million.

This comes after even Bill Clinton helped Congressional Republicans to reduce the federal payroll by over 300,000 in the late 1990s. The federal payroll has been virtually unchanged at about 1.2 million for over twenty years. However, President Obama is padding his $3.8 trillion budget with these extra employees.

True, some are DHS and Department of Defense members, but many are assuredly bureaucrats and ideologues. The fact that many, if not most, will be unionized will strengthen the role of big labor in everyday federal workings.

Where are we getting this money from?

What better way to ensure an endless stream of supporters than to employ them.

A smaller Federal workforce is always needed. Unless they are law enforcement, intelligence officers, military, or are in some other national security role more people getting money from the taxpayer is bad.

Obama will steer the nation in the different direction, I'm sure. But he can never outspend the current administration who is now trillions in debt. Thanks to the ever unpopular Bush.
