Perhaps he is including all levels of government. My number is federal only. Can anyone shed any light on this?
Without having a link handy, I believe you're right -- he said "[g]overnment spending in the United States" -- not "United States Government/federal spending".
And yes, I think the 40+% is a "public-sector" (vs. private sector) number.
