I'm sure many would like to be overpaid for their job
There are some very fine federal employees. I even know a few of them. But there are some with an agenda that is inconsistent with their mission. The zealots at the EPA, for example, are pushing to do things that go well beyond their mandate. The Interior Department and the Energy Department have doing all they can to strangle the domestic production of energy in pursuit of their weird green agenda. The Education department has spent more money making things worse than most people could imagine. They have a knack for driving test scores down. The Department of Homeland Security is thwarting the honest civil servants who want to actually enforce the immigration laws.
