The US Government will need 270,000 NEW employee's in the next 3 years!…….

Yes ……you read that right……Your government needs to hire more than a quarter of a million NEW employee’s over the next 36 months according to a survey to be released in the next 12 hours. The jobs are in the  medical, security, law enforcement, legal and administrative fields……..to be fair…the final number could be smaller …or higher based on retirements, use of contractors and congress loosening of its purse strings for new hires………

These jobs have been identified as ‘mission critical’……..but….if you add up ALL of the jobs they expect to need in the next 36 months…….the number jumps to 600,000!….and folks……. the federal government expects to have trouble filling the jobs!….maybe it has something to do with Obama planning to cut the federal employee’s raise from 2.4% to 2.0%, in January….I’m sure that will be helpful…..

The Big Banks get bigger…………

A sobering piece in the Washington Post points something very disturbing coming out of the countries financial downturn. That is that….the nations big banks have  gotten even bigger and are more likely to have a permeant spot in the ‘too big to fail spot’……..as  result of the White House policy of  not letting anyone of them fail…the middle guys have no such protection….and have been swallowed up….leaving bigger top players…….while the government is watching the big guys…….those banks are now making big profits and are trying to pay big salaries to keep their employees causing headaches for watch dogs and the White House……..the public maybe the ones who get mad…watching these unfold in front of their eyes while they get shut out of opportunities  to work and get  credit……….

For the ‘Blue Dogs” and Healthcare …this summer is about Grass Roots………

Rep Barron Hill (D, Ind) went home for his summer vacation, from the nations capital, and ever since, he has been dealing with grassroots opposition, and support for President Obama’s Healthcare Program………No matter  what, I believe that we have to get a hold on costs, and that more people need to be able to get access to healthcare. And don’t talk to me about Socialism…cause don’t we have Social Security, Medicare, Unemployment Insurance, Food Stamps and other Social programs that the government operates?
