DC...Still Hiring While the Rest of the Country Suffers. The Joke is on Us.

Washington DC vs. America doesn’t doesn’t act like there’s a deficit problem:

If you worry that the federal government can’t afford $38 billion in cuts, please read Chris Moody’s article from two weeks ago. There’s a $1.6 trillion deficit but the feds are still hiring. As of March 23 they were hiring someone to run a Facebook page for the Department of the Interior (at up to $115,000 a year). They were hiring equal opportunity compliance officers at the Peace Corps and Department of Interior for $150,000 to $180,000 a pop. They were hiring deputy speechwriters for officials at relatively obscure agencies. …P.S.: The point isn’t so much that these federal employees are overpaid, though they are. The point is that if there were any actual sense of a deficit crisis in Washington these are jobs that would not be filled at all. … Well, maybe the Facebook editor. I think that’s a critical investment necessary to win the future, don’t you? … P.P.S.: That’s what’s so annoying about all the calls from respectable Beltwayish opinion leaders to stop cutting the non-defense discretionary budget and focus on entitlements, because ‘that’s where the big money is.’ From one perspective, this is a rational argument. That is where the big money is. From another perspective, it looks like a tacit conspiracy of Washingtonians not to sacrifice the jobs of any of their friends, or the local economy, by any kind of actual slimming down (of the sort a private company in similar straits would have undertaken years ago). … In effect, the respectable ”pivot to entitlements” position says,”we’re going to cut Social Security checks and Medicare for mid-income old people to save the jobs of $180K equal opportunity officers at the DOT.” … Why not wring the fat out of government first? …

Update: Here’s the current list of jobs the government is still filling. …

My Comments: Its no wonder that Washington DC is the only place in the USA that housing prices are increasing rather than decreasing.

This is why the federal government/budget needs to be slashed across the board. Nothing should be safe until the books are balanced and the deficit is gone.

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!

AMEN, brother.

The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.

Nothing wrong with the armed forces doing R&D but only if they have enough in their budgets after it has been reduced in total.
Let them make the tough choices of what they need, not congress!

Why should Obama care about the U.S earning enough money to even pay the interest on the debt,he can just walk away at the end of his term as President,hell apparently he is not even an American.He is just "playin wid yuh all".Our country has and is still cutting everything to the bone,everyone is bleeding,yet we still are having to borrow more money and are running a huge defecit.The amount we owe is huge,the interest mind boggling.Though not as big as yours

Team- unbiased opinion.K.I.S.S principle upheld here
