The BLS says that the federal government grew over the last 3 years, Again, proving songwright wrong. You didn't read your own link or go to the BLS site? Or what's your point. Politifact also links ot the BLS site.

Here's the chart that shows total number of Federal employees by month and year. It sure looks to me like there were less Federal employees in 2011 than there were in 2009.

This chart shows all government employees, the op said " The size of the federal Government has Shrunk ". I said wrong the size of the FEDERAL government has grown. Which is true according to your link to BLS and mine.

I don't understand how one chart shows one thing and the other chart shows another thing. *throwing my hands up in the air*
