How many of those middle class jobs (not minimum wage) does the Obama economy have to add to the private sector to pay for each $128,000 government job added?
How many of those middle class jobs does the Obama economy have to have added to the private sector to pay for the roughly 130,000 workers added to the federal payroll over the past four years?
