Government employment explodes against private employment — by the numbers

2009 brought an explosive shift from private to federal government employment. Below is a sobering view of the numbers in graph form.
 
Contrary to the federal explosion, state and local governments faded out overall employment ever so slightly. A minimal .05% drop was seen in State government employment while local government lowered it’s employment by .5%.
 
For every government employee hired more taxes need to be collected to support these “public servants” in the form of payroll tax, usage tax, fees, permits, licensing, etc.
 
The passage of the healthcare bill, an estimated one hundred and eleven new bureaucracies will be created to further increase the government payroll burden. Those “public servants” who designed the healthcare bill in the name of Senators (100) and Representatives (435) earn a staggering $174,000. Each of those “public servants” have a full office staff that renders salary expenditures well over $2 million per office annually.
