Largest-ever federal payroll to hit 2.15 million - Washington Times
This is how nations fail. Once the federal government starts hiring at a faster rate than the private sector, we will see inflation, higher unemployment and eventually military socialism. With the economy slowing and more private industries closing, we will have more unemployed, starving people who will start demanding the government do something. The government will hire more people so the elected leaders can protect themselves from the angry crowds! This is how nations fall.
We must put an end to an expanding federal government and start closing departments starting with the DOE!
