Indiana No Longer Makes Anything, But We Get Bayh

"For the first time since before the Civil War and perhaps ever, more people in Indiana work in government than in all the factories in the state.

Rocked by layoffs, imports and automation, workers in Indiana plants numbered 430,800 in January, while government at all levels, including schools and publicly owned hospitals, employed 442,800 workers."

This fact probably wasn't going to sit too well in Bayh's now non-existent re-election bid.

Indiana is surely not the only state now reliant on government employment to keep them afloat.

Let's not call it socialism though, that's so unfair.
