So let’s see…
You can get 99 Weeks of Unemployment. Free food from food stamps. An Obamaphone and Free Internet all from the government and there’s housing assistance…all if you’re “poor”.
Then there’s Disability, Social Security, Medicare, and more.
Then you tax the people who are actually working to “help” out the “poor”?
And you blame it all on “the rich”.
Why do I bother? Seriously… Why?
Because, I have pride and self-motivation and I’m not a lazy ass SOB. That’s why.
Just another reason why I’m not politically correct. 🙂
A Dinosaur in a Socialist age.
And the other gravy train…Public Sector employees.
Employees who are paid by the tax payers because government do not actually produce anything, but boy can they spend it and tell you how to spend your money (especially on them).
The public sector employee is paid by the taxpayers. So if you have more of them you need more tax money. If you have a dwindling of tax payers (since 50% of Americans pay no taxes) you have to get from “the rich”.
So what incentive is their to be successful and “rich” in America these days?
In the 1,420 days since he took the oath of office, the federal government has daily hired on average 101 new employees. Every day. Seven days a week. All 202 weeks. That makes 143,000 more federal workers than when Obama talked forever on that cold day in January of 2009.
Meanwhile, 25 million Americans are unemployed or underemployed and the “official” unemployment rate has largely not changed one bit in 4 years because millions have given up looking. Well, look to Uncle Sam, he’s hiring… 🙂
Under Obama the total federal workforce has surpassed two million for the first time since the first Clinton term, now sitting about the 2.2 ,million level.
Now comes a new poll revealing that Americans know what’s going on. A majority of Americans believes government workers make more money than private sector workers, according to the new Rasmussen Reports poll. Sixty-one percent of private sector workers believe that.
Surprisingly, Republicans, independents and Democrats are united in agreement that government employees have it better than private sector workers although, predictably, Dems are slightly less sure.
“The federal workforce has become an elite island of secure and high-paid workers, separated from the ocean of average American workers competing in the global economy,” according to a report this year by the Cato Institute.
That report found the average civilian federal government worker collected just under $84,000 a year in taxpayer money, about $32,000 more than the average private sector worker. That’s a total federal worker package of about $236 billion a year.
The latest IRS report said, for instance, that 36 of Obama’s White House aides had $833,000 in unpaid back taxes.
According to Rasmussen, two out of three Americans are sure that company employees work harder than their lazy lay-about government counterparts. Only five percent think it’s the other way around; they may belong to street repair crews (see photo above).
Even a plurality (48%) of government employees admit their private industry counterparts do work harder.
Another 67% believe that government workers have greater job security than those in the production- profit-driven private sector, job security being an acute issue in these last four Obama years so rife with economic uncertainty.
Sixteen percent don’t think there’s much difference in job security, while 9% say government workers have less job security. They may be state and local government employees, whose number has declined with the end of Obama’s ineffective $830 billion economic stimulus package, much of it devoted to protecting those union jobs.
That protection was only temporarily, as it turns out. But the borrowing to pay for it is now a permanent part of the nation’s $16.3 trillion debt. (IBD)
And just like Mom, when asked, “Who’s going to clean up this mess?”
