OUR REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT:
Shrinking government: Federal hiring is down, departures are up (Josh Hicks August 2014, Washington Post)
Federal hiring has declined rapidly in recent years, while the number of departures has increased nearly as fast. That's a recipe for a shrinking government. [...]The number of federal employees leaving government rose from about 83,000 in 2008 to 114,000 last year, representing a 37 percent increase in departures. At the same time, the number of hires has declined every year since 2009, dropping from about 140,000 to roughly 77,000.
