'Tweren't for the government, America would be unemployed:

From John Mauldin's Things That Make You Go Hmmm... Things I Don’t Understand:

Whilst the total working population is back to where it stood in 1983, the total number of government employees has continued its inexorable march higher almost without pause (though the number is 700,000 lower than its peak in June 2010).

What happens when everyone is a government worker?
