If You Can’t Beat ‘Em, Join ‘Em
A recent report shows that Federal employees are enjoying unprecedented pay despite a terrible recession. So much for a little belt tightening during a time of dwindling tax revenues and record deficits. Pretty much the rule of thumb for the Federal government is whatever most Americans are doing with regards to personal finances, do the opposite. When most Americans are cutting spending and buckling down, the Federal government should borrow, print, and spend more.
Maybe we should all go work to the Federal government. Now that would be a productive economy. Maybe we could all then be a part of one giant union also. We could have high pay, huge benefits and job security.
The crazy thing is that there are real Americans that believe this is not only possible but should be what is implemented.
