The Federal Aristocracy


Dems love to bleat about "the gap between the rich and the poor," which is the central element of their economic con job justifying high taxes on those who produce wealth to buy votes from their political supporters.

The real scandal is shown in the chart above. Federal workers, with the help of their unions, are conducting a massive rip-off of the rest of us. These coddled denizens of the Federal Goliath now make twice what private sector workers make, and this for working fewer hours, getting more time off, having lower performance standards, with no risk of layoffs and little risk of being fired for poor performance.

We really do live in a two tiered society - Federal workers on top, and the rest of us down below staggering to pay for them. Welcome to the new aristocracy.
