The link says they count things like defense spending in their numbers. Probably park service and EPA, too. This isn’t really going to individuals.

They should probably restrict these kind of reports to welfare and safety net type programs that have to do with the government money supporting instead of personal income supporting

I wouldn’t include earned social security/Medicare, but I would include unearned+ssi+Medicaid, etc

Individuals work for federal parks, the EPA, and for the defense department. I don’t believe those Alaskan feds are the hardy individuals who live in cabins and harvest salmon or mine gold to make their living.
