Only Jobs Available......USA Inc.???
An AP analysis of economic data from around the country shows that economic pain in a county decreases as the percentage of government workers in its work force rises.
Think about the percentage of the U.S. Population is dependant on the government for expenses....including those on Social Security, Welfare, Food Stamps, AFDC, Unemployment, and Direct Government Workers(over 21,000,000).
Then add in those in the private sector that have jobs simply because of government spending(Health Care, Wal Mart, Transporation, Defense, Office Supplies, Manufacturing, Construction, Law, Technology and on and on and on)
You begin to realize that Government Spending is now a HUGE percentage of the economy....the only question is who is going to pay for all this spending when the private sector is contracting rapidly?????????
