Public sector hiring has outpaced private sector hiring for the last few years. However, that has recently and rightly changed given the fact the Democrats (and many Republicans) have bankrupted the federal government as well as state and local governments thus forcing public sector job cuts. Most of the cuts are taking place at the state and local level since most such governments are required by law to balance their budgets and they can't print money. The federal government on the other hand is not bound by any such law and can print money at will, which is exactly what they are doing to pay the bills.

Even if taxes were increased to 75%, the federal government would have to be reduced by 50% just to have any hope of paying down the national debt. Government jobs produce nothing but debt and so there should be as few of them as possible. The private sector offers the only hope for staving off what is nearly an inevitable default buy the United States of America.

That's very big of you to admit all job creation is private sector today most members of the conservative underground will not admit that

There is not anywhere near enough job growth to even think about being cautiously optimistic and, in terms of overall employment, the private sector growth is more than offset by the public sector decline. While the public sector numbers should decline, they still represent someone's paycheck.

Real unemployment still rests around 20% when you calculate all members of the workforce that want to work and can't find a job or are underemployed. The government data omits this for obvious reasons.

True job growth of any variety does not keep up with the graduation rate/new entry folks much less take people off the unemployed lists.
