Gov't employees are paid from tax revenue provided by those in the private sector. The "entity" that gov't employees are paid from IS the Government!!!! Kind of seems like the private sector employee pays taxes twice, their own then those of the gov't employee. I agree that some government employees deserve the compensation that they receive. A sample of whom a true beneficiary of our tax monies should be, are the members of our Armed Forces, who lay their lives on the line for us, every minute, every hour of every day.
