Chart of the day

Just going to copy this wholesale from Yglesias:


I would say “doing fine” is a huge overestimate of the health of the private sector labor market but the core point that private employment is up and public employment is down since the start of Barack Obama’s Era of Sharia Socialism remains true and important.

  1. Mike in Chapel Hill says:

    Isn’t this exactly the chart that Republicans want? A decrease in government employee (“this is what “shrinking the government” looks like) and increase in private sector employment? The GOP should be happy.

    • Mike in Canada says:

      Plus shrinking the government roster during an economic slowdown makes the slowdown worse as more people enter the unemployment lines, so ‘Obama’s economy’ looks worse.

      It’s a win win for Republicans.

      I wonder how many decisions were made on this kind of basis by Republican Governors and congress. After all, the Republicans said their number one priority was to get Obama out of office, not jobs, nor the economy.

      Or maybe I’m just cynical.
