In a hole the US government is still digging

The federal budget is a crisis to you and me, but not to the beltway crowd: it is business as usual. "Depress the country and stimulate the DC area by hiring," appears to be their thinking. Here is one of 40 pages of open jobs with the government. Of 25 entries on this page ten pay over $105,000 plus better benefits than you have.

USA Jobs

Mickey Kaus describes the situation at Daily Caller:

There’s a $1.6 trillion deficit but the feds are still hiring. As of March 23 they were hiring someone to run a Facebook page for the Deparment of the Interior (at up to $115,000 a year). They were hiring equal opportunity compliance officers at the Peace Corps and Department of Interior for $150,000 to $180,000 a pop. They were hiring deputy speechwriters for officials at relatively obscure agencies.
