Comes from a blogger at Journal and a table at Wikipedia .



 



Heres how farked we are due to liberals and believers in big gummit:



Lets add up the tax take from some smaller states:



WV, ME, SD, WY, MT, AK VT ND.



 



Add up the entire tax take from these states (All federal. Not just income.  ALL).



The damned post office could not cover their budget short with all that money.



 



 



Nice job guys

The Fed PIGS spend 20 billion dollars on travel per year.  Thats around 59 million a day.  Obama crowed that he would cut that by 2 billion.  Down to 57 million a day.



 



A quarter million federal employees.  Thats enough to put five thousand feds in every state.  Georgia has the most counties at 99, so lets use them-that would be, yes. FIFTY fed employees in every single county in Georgia.



And we are told that they need over 5000 a minute to travel.



 



This is a new favorite of mine.

Does that 20 thousand million count Nancy's private US Air Force jet?

Or just the lowly GS-6 traveling for his job driving from farm to farm conducting the Census?

 

$20,000,000,000 is at the Government travel rate don't forget, imagine if they paid full price.

So is it more or less then historical? and how much of that is made up of military and civilian contractors?

NC has 100 counties, but I don't think that's a critical issue in your argument

 

GA has 159 counties and TX has 254.

 

Nonetheless, the amounts you are talking about is just waste.

that's interesting.

the biggest drop in government employees was under George W. Bush

:huh:

 

Yeah I thought that was strange too until I read

In order to establish a somewhat fair administration-to-administration comparison, The Eye compared workforce totals from the first full calendar year of a president's term, starting with John F. Kennedy.

 

So I'm not sure how much bush slashed in his 1st year vs what Clinton did from his 1st year through his two terms

2,799,000 in 1999

2,899,000 in 2000

2,698,000 in 2001

2,690,000 in 2002

 

 

 

yeah...see what I mean? and the number of fed executive branch employees per 1,000 residents has been declining since Nixon....from 14 to about 8 per 1,000. I never would have guessed that.
