When one considers that public sector employment has ranged since the 1950s at between 15 percent and 19 percent of the population, the makeup of the current cabinet—over 90 percent of its prior experience was in the public sector—is remarkable.
Never have we had such inexperienced people leading our country, while seldom have we lived in such perilous times.
