GOP Propaganda Machine at Work

Krugman link

One of the reasons why so many American's believe that we have out of control spending, and that government jobs have been growing while the private sector has been cutting back, is because GOP politicians say it is true, and their media outlets repeat it. The increase in federal government jobs was due to temporary hiring for the 2010 census, and the increase in government regulators was due entirely to homeland security. Actually total government jobs have decreased because of state and local cutbacks.
