Who Benefits From Obama? Follow The Money…

In ”The New Power Class Who Will Profit From Obama’s Second Term,” Joel Kotkin reports:

Between late 2007 and mid-2009, the number of U.S. federal workers earning more than $150,000 more than doubled, even as the economy fell into a deep recession. Even as the private sector, and state government employment has fallen, the ranks of federal nomenklatura have swelled so much that Washington, D.C., has replaced New York as the wealthiest region in the country.

    Am I to understand that after an astonishing shot at reducing BDS unemployment figures by flooding the IRS with
    (I ASSUME)qualified college graduate data entry clerk new hire gub’mint workers, we can all now expect (un-expected)”delays” in Tax overpayment returns?

    What, exactly, is the rate of interest on that de facto pay-day “loan” to the treasury? Anywhere near the interest, penalties, and fines imposed?
    What IS the average payscale for IRS clerks, entering data onto software of one of the largest “entirely updated”, then almost immediately entirely replaced as “insufficient”, ‘puter systems designed to…you know…make our lives easier?

    Oh, right. The NEW Affordable “Health Care” Tax, et alia

    “…federal nomenklatura…” (sarcastic point not lost…however)
    Why must those in the “health care”, legal, and alleged humanities,(the most contentious in todays economic atmosphere) speak in toungues alien to the vast majority of “the masses”?
    Oooo, I know,….free “access”/”E-Z credit” to approved higher (now preK-16+) education?

    Somehow in a nod to MLK day, I just saw A Raisin In The Sun again.(on previously “free”,now pay basic cable,tee vee)WARNING:No longer work-safe, F-word “usage”.

    “What are you learning down there?(in college)
    What are they filling your head with?
    Sociology? Psychology?
    They teaching you how to be a man?
    How to take over and run this world, boy?
    How to run a rubber plantation or a steel mill or something?
    (or)Just how to read books and talk proper.
    And wear faggoty white shoes.”
