On the Other Hand....

Unemployment in the private sector is somewhere around 7.7% and the number of working-age Americans who are working continues to shrink.

But there's a bright spot!!!

The unemployment rate for civilian government workers plunged from 4.2 percent in October to 3.8 percent in November, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, as government added 35,000 to its taxpayer-funded payrolls during the month.

So.  There are 143 million people who have jobs.  20 million are Gummint workers (assuming that they actually do something and that whatever they do is useful to the Republic.)  Sustainable?  You'll find out.
