No surprises here: Government workers feel economically safe

A new Rasmussen Report found an interesting viewpoint among government employees:

Government employees are much more bullish about the economy than those who work in the private sector….

Data from the Rasmussen Consumer Index from the past seven days shows that a plurality of government workers think the economy is getting better while those who work in the private sector tend to have the opposite view. Those in the government sector are also more upbeat about the current state of the economy and their own personal finances.

It’s not surprising, though, is it?  Their livelihood is guaranteed by our taxes.  Their customer base is, to speak in in appropriately commercial terms, completely assured.  I wouldn’t be worried about my job either if I knew that people could go to jail for not supporting me.
