Big Government gets Bigger!

I saw this post today. We must reduce the size of government. This trend cannot sustain itself.

“Government employment in the Greater Washington, D.C., region has jumped more than 10% during the last eight years, while retail employment has gone nowhere. And this divergence has accelerated as the recession has deepened!

”Unfortunately, the employment trends depicted in the nearby chart are not the trends that typically produce national prosperity. If government employment were to continue rising while private sector employment fell, the economy would become less productive... at least that would be our guess. (Picture the post office operating every McDonald's in the land)."
