I'm tired of all the people who think that we can recover the economy on private-industry jobs alone (where have they been the last 6 months when 3.5 MILLION private industry jobs disappeared?!?!?). However, there's still a good reason to oppose pork: The jobs the federal government creates, well 20% of them don't pay a living wage, leaving one in 5 federal employees in poverty (and I'll bet most of them, despite bipartisan "support for the troops" are soldiers).
