Is it fitting that Obama complained about the "Fat Cats" of Wall Street without mentioning the new burgeoning ranks of well-heeled federal workers?
We shouldn't be shocked if we have believed all along in the cost of an ever-growing federal government that protects its powers by placing over-paid government workers as a fat cushion between itself and the common, everyday taxpayer...or better yet-that working man that is so distinguishable from the Washington elite that expands itself on the back of the vulgar taxpayers.
The Right Side News comments in detail about the facts reported from USA Today : "Federal employees making salaries of $100,000 or more jumped from 14% to 19% of civil servants during the recession's first 18 months - and that's before overtime pay and bonuses are counted. 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."
Right Side News discusses the issue of the ruling elite and its historical change in number. In the past, both in Europe and America, the ruling elite was always prosperous but small in number. Not Now. The unprecedented expansion of government spending is building an elite from the future estimate of tax collection from its citizens.
Yet this Federal elite should realize that voters calling themselves "Independent" are growing in number with some polls saying that this group will soon outnumber both parties.
In the public sector, there is no way to observe what these lawyers, scientists,czars, and advisers actually do. Nothing is measurable, and corruption festers.
Voters calling themselves independent will grow, and so will their voices on the internet, in other forms of social media that the vulgar citizen uses. At long last, we will start to see this monster of an overgrown, always hungry government finally sling off the parasites who never served the interests of the American citizen for even a day!
