Just quickly: Government dependents Outnumber Those with Private Sector Jobs in 11 States. That almost says it all.
This is significant because government jobs rely on taxpayer money for their income, as do dependents. Government cannot create growth because it depends on the private sector, which is the only place true economic growth takes place. Government is a drain on the private sector, and never more than now.
In a few days, all of our taxes will go up to fund a government so bloated that Obama never managed less than $1T deficit on any of the past four years. And he wants to spend even more on new things rather than pay down the deficit! This spells even more economic trouble, beyond the obvious trouble for middle America with higher taxes, higher premiums thanks to Obamacare, and higher costs of living in part thanks to taxes being passed along from businesses to consumers, as they always are just to avoid bankruptcy.
