Here is a news flash, you get what you pay for. So our federal government, being the good stewards with our money that they are, pays their defense contractors $1.10 for every $1.00 they spend developing and building weapons. Now please, will someone, anyone out there who has a similar contract in the "free market" please speak up and let us know about your windfall.

Ok, we all know that such a contract doesn't exist in the real world. Only the federal government is stupid enough to give money away like that, because it isn't their money. It belongs to you and me. They don't give a damn about it as long as it buys them the perks they desire.

Now our defense contractors make $1.10 for every $1.00 they spend. So if you did get a contract like that, would you be tight with your money so you make less, or spend as much as you can for as long as you can to make more profit? But golly gee, we just can't figure out the defense contractor's game? Yeah, right. It's not exactly rocket science, is it?

Thank you for focusing your attention on a topic that the average American taxpayer knows nothing about. There is ample evidence produced in the normal conduct of government business on an annual basis to document that the Department of Defense has the largest fraud, waste and inefficiency in the entire Federal government.
