Correction: Yes it does.
From FredOnEverything, in his recent article, Iron Law:
Since just keeping people from working wasn´t enough, we started inventing jobs of less and less usefulness. Think nail salons, grief therapists, dog groomers, and the federal bureaucracy. It is God´s holy truth that half of the feddle gummint could be fired tomorrow, and the only effect would be to unclog things.
But who would transfer weapons to Mexico, watch as I type this, ignore an Ambassador's calls for help, or keep an eye on those Tea Party people?
