When The Daily Show's John Stewart and Stephen Colbert take to the National Mall this weekend, they're going to have to deal with a counter-rally.
With so many Tea Party candidates running on anti-Washington platforms, Steve Ressler is standing up for the federal work force. He helped found GovLoop.com, a social networking site for federal employees. Ressler decided to name his rally the "Government Doesn't Suck" march.
"I think people have a poor perception of what it actually means to be a government employee, they just kind of take a quick, easy cheap-shot," Ressler says.
Some Republicans claim the government workforce has unnecessarily grown by 188,000 people since the start of the Obama Administration. They say shrinking its size will give the private sector freedom to grow.
