Federal pay ahead of private industry - USATODAY.com
When the federal government pays more money then the private sector, it will devastate our economy in due time. The federal government does not add any value to our economy. They do not create wealth, only private sector jobs can create wealth in our economy.
If the federal government stays on this track of destructive politics by growing the government, soon we will not have enough private sector taxes to sustain paying all the federal government employees. With no tax dollars to pay government workers with, we will see unemployment, inflation and depression set in soon after.
This is how societies crumble within. To stop destructive politics, we must demand congress freeze their government expansion and start closing federal departments starting with the Department of Energy.
