Obama & Private Sector are Strangers

Via Instapundit (again), this is a pretty remarkable chart.

Nick Schulz looks at difference between Obama’s cabinet and all other presidents beginning with Teddy, with a background in the private sector. He writes:

When one considers that public sector employment has ranged since the 1950s at between 15% and 19% of the population, the makeup of the current cabinet — over 90% of its prior experience was in the public sector — is remarkable.

To which one can only add: how can you respect or relate to the private sector, when you have so little exposure to them? How can you help the private sector when you don’t think they have anything worth listening to?

Remaking America.
