Obama’s State of DisUnion
King Obama’s speech last night proved yet again how obsessed he is with ramming his radical leftist “progressive” agenda right down every Americans throat. He blamed every problem on somebody else, Bush,Republicans and corporate america. The Democrat party has been hi-jacked by the uber-leftist like George Soros and the Moveon.org crowd and they will do everything possible to implement there agenda. The King and his court don’t seem to understand that business create’s jobs, profits fuels innovation and productivity and that provides opportunity for people to prosper. Problems like healthcare, housing and education can be solved when people have JOBS. Obama and the (D) are so beholden to the Unions and Progressives that they are incapable of creating private sector jobs. There wholesale assault on taxpayers and business combined with record spending is bankrupting our nation. There are now more union federal employees then private sector ones. This unchecked growth in government is costing every taxpayer and leaving our future to be dictated to by foreign countries who are bankrolling this insanity. Does anyone out there think there getting the “best bang for there buck” when the federal government spends there hard earned dollars? The private sector in almost every instance will deliver more service or product then any government entity. All these new federal employees will forever be yet another burden for taxpayers to bear. It would be great if everyone could make $75k+ a year, which is the average salary of most federal workers before overtime.
Federal workers are enjoying an extraordinary boom time — in pay and hiring — during a recession that has cost 7.3 million jobs in the private sector.
The highest-paid federal employees are doing best of all on salary increases. Defense Department civilian employees earning $150,000 or more increased from 1,868 in December 2007 to 10,100 in June 2009, the most recent figure available.
When the recession started, the Transportation Department had only one person earning a salary of $170,000 or more. Eighteen months later, 1,690 employees had salaries above $170,000.
The trend to six-figure salaries is occurring throughout the federal government, in agencies big and small, high-tech and low-tech. The primary cause: substantial pay raises and new salary rules.
The world is growing up and we can no longer continue this lunacy or we will soon be equal to the rest of the world and that is not a good thing.
