PAUL: The thing I don’t understand is that your arguing that the government sector is struggling. Are you arguing that there are fewer government employees under Obama than there were under Bush?
KRUGMAN: Of course. That’s a fact. That’s a tremendous fact.
PAUL: No, the size of growth of government is enormous under president Obama.
KRUGMAN: If government employment had grown as fast under Obama as it did under Bush, we’d have a million and a half more people employed right now — directly.
PAUL: Are there less people employed or more people employed now by government?
Well, Rand...umm...about that, yeah...
About half a million less or so, Rand. That Census spike there? Totally temporary, and since then, government employment has in fact dropped like Rand's IQ.
My Senator is a moron, folks. Don't blame me, I voted for Jack Conway.
