<<2.Under Obama the number of federal non postal worker employees has grown 107 thousand in two years. readily accessible on internet.>>

No. http://blogs.govexec.com/fedblog/2011/02/has_obama_added_200000_new_fed.php

<<.Obuma has issued an executive order within the past two weeks to combine federal agencies, an election year ploy>>

A ploy? Nope. It's what he promised in his State of the Union address.

Wrong, who is govexec. blogs anyway? I wrote 107 thousand the number is actually higher.
"We turned, as we always do, to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the official statistician for the United States labor force.

BLS calculates two categories that illuminate Boehner’s comment.

The first is the overall rise in federal employees between January 2009 and January 2011. The net increase was 58,000.

The second is the number of federal employees without counting U.S. Postal Service workers. Over that same two-year period, the increase was 140,800."

Oh okay not a ploy just doing a great job, after a year of dithering he is finally getting around to a State of the Union promise. The fact remains it is 3 billion over 10 years which is more than likely not going to happen and not one dime of it has been realized yet. It's just a proposal.

HAHAHA don't you get the irony, you tell us how bad life is in Ohio and then say, but Obama has done a lot. Yes, indeed a lot?
The 1% and greed have ruined this country. I see the class warfare schtick is working.

Politifact also said that the number of federal employees had increased, So, therefore we have both proven songwright is wrong on the assertion that the Federal government has shrunk under Obama.

Well great, Ohio has turned around! A job opening at the Auto plant. Thank you Obama! Now if he can only stop those Republicans from raising the price of gas on us.

The link I provided proves that Politifact isn't correct. It links directly to the BLS.
