Stephen Moore wrote this piece in the Wall Street Journal which contrast Obama's government/public sector and private sector employment stats in the clip.

Here are some of his Moore's statistics, "Today in America there are nearly twice as many people working for the government (22.5 million) than in all of manufacturing (11.5 million)....More Americans work for the government than work in construction, farming, fishing, forestry, manufacturing, mining and utilities combined.....Nearly half of the $2.2 trillion cost of state and local governments is the $1 trillion-a-year tab for pay and benefits of state and local employees.....Surveys of college graduates are finding that more and more of our top minds want to work for the government."

Obama needs to continue repeating these core beliefs so all Americans know what he really believes in.
