Yet another article on MSN where they state incorrect opinions as fact when they could easily look up the facts before they publish the non-sense. They say Federal spending on payrolls has gone down since the 2008-2009 recession, but the fact is it has increased 18% since 2008, a fact published on the Bureau of Economic Analysis website. http://www.bea.gov/national/nipaweb/Ni_FedBeaSna/TableView.asp?SelectedTable=16&FirstYear=2008&LastYear=2012&Freq=Qtr. Also being that I work for the Federal Govt. in budget my agency had its largest one year budget increase ever in 2010, but in 2012 and 2013 our budget has decreased, but is still well above 2009.
