The federal workforce is only part of the spending. In 1968, it was probably half of a little pie chart. In 2013, it's just a sliver in a humongous pie chart. I'm not blaming it on Obama or any other President. They're not in charge of spending, and much of the spending is mandatory. It's just a fact it's at an all-time high.
