    Your public-sector workers, are, in fact, the true “pigs at the trough”, consuming the wealth created by the private-sector workers.

    Bob your just wrong sir...

    Yes you can.

    They get paid with tax dollars, then turn around and and give part of that back in the form of taxes. It's in no way a net profit for the government. Let's not act as if it is. It's nothing more than recycling money.

    The only way the government can see any kind of actual revenue, is when the private sector creates wealth and pays a portion of it in taxes.

    The real joke is how Libbos thing that an employee can pay the employer a fee to keep their job and some how that results in a profit for the employer.

    But, hey, I live in the real world.
