So obama says private business is doing ok and the goverment sector is hurting.

Hey obama instead of tearing down the private sector to prop up the goverment, why don't you do the logical thing and turn over the government to private business since they know what success looks like.

And who is the leader of the government right now? I think its the man in the big white house up the road. The gov. need to stay the hell out of the way and let the american people drive the show. Who got us into this mess in the first place, and now they want to fix it. :roll: When was the last time the government fixed anything right?

Don't worry Government employee rolls will see a large jump if Obamacare is not struck down as Obama will have to hire thousands to implement it and thousands more IRS agents to collect the taxes to pay for it.

BTW I have to laugh at Oldtimer :roll: I remember arguing with him on Bull Session on the US implimenting a Cattle ID system and he refused to believe the US needed a system and he didn't trust the US government to implement a system that would actually work without costing the US ranchers an arm and leg. But here on Political Bull he figures an Incompetent President backed up by Air Head Pelosi and obstructionist Harry Reid can implement a US Health Care system at an affordable cost and actually provide timely service to the masses. :roll:

So because the number of government workers has decreased, the unemployed rate can't be 4%? :roll:

Are you saying that the unemployed rate for public service workers was less than 4%? Well, a year ago, it was.

even with the excessively high gas and energy prices, energy extraction unemployment is up under Obama

I would be willing to bet most of the sectors with lower unemployment is mostly due to workers giving up or being tossed off the end of the unemployment rolls...

Does anyone know how much of that drop in Government employees was due to those that did the census. I would also love to know what the true unployment rate is between the two different sectors when you count all those that stop looking for work?

Here is another question, how many of the Government employees that lost their jobs was Teachers, Policemen and Firemen verses those working for Obama's White House and Congressional Offices? Seems everytime they talk about those loosing their jobs you never hear them mention anyone working in DC being on the downsize list. :roll:

that may be one factor, but the military has had a reduction in force as well...


and as state and local governments try to meet their budgets and lower deficits, they will also lay people off.
