solak saidThe only difference is that there are maybe thousands of overpaid CEO's at most, but there are tens of millions of Public Employees pimping the system at the expense of the struggling taxpayer who can't participate in these lucrative pension plans or subsidized health-care.
Please present your evidence for "tens of millions of Public Employees pimping the system."
The worst examples being touted are local, county or state, not Federal. Do you have any of these in your community? Did you do anything to prevent it? Did you even bother to check what your local officials were making, and what their pensions are?
What impresses me is that these local abuses were going on for many years, even decades. And it wasn't until a Democrat was in the White House, and Democrats controlled the Congress, that suddenly Americans discovered all this. Yet nothing had changed at the local level, when Obama entered the White House.
Manipulation by the right wing, perhaps? A sudden discovery of abuses about which Republicans were silent before? An attempt to smear the Federal government, and Democrats briefly in charge (forgetting for a moment Republican obstructionism that gutted Democrat control), with abuses that are mostly below Federal level, and which Washington cannot police?
But hey, the Beck, Limbaugh, O'Reilly mantra is that Democrats are to blame for everything, and the public is buying it. Just like a small group of RJers here are selling it, good right-wing agents that they are.
And so we see the OP as an attempt to smear Obama, with what is purely a local issue. And to claim that all US government runs like this, so we will be encouraged to vote all Democrats out of office. A typical right-wing ploy, that the weak-minded and poorly-informed will endorse. Well done, Solak -- you have accomplished your mission.
