Cavuto Guest Complaints About Size Of Federal Workforce Undercut By “Fox Fact”

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) visited Your World yesterday to discuss his idea to cut 10% of the federal workforce by 2015. "We got a good federal workforce, but we have too many people who we're paying too much money. So the idea is, for every 3 people who retire, we have something like 400,000 people that will retire over the next couple of years… they can only hire back one. The fundamental problem is that President Obama has grown government, he hasn't grown the private sector jobs... The net increase in the number of federal workers, 162,000 people… It's not sustainable." Rep. Chaffetz said. The only problem? Moments later, a “Fox Fact” in the right corner said, “FED GOVT WORKFORCE AS PERCENTAGE OF POPULATION AT LOWEST LEVEL SINCE 1960’S.”
