    clearance.  If there a half million people with this level of clearance, who knows what they are looking into on their own.  Also what is the cost of hiring contractors verses government employees?  Since the Republicans are so worried about the debt, why don't they investigate the cost.  Oh, I forgot they are the less government more business party at any cost.

    Do not adjust your mind, there is a flaw in reality.

    •  No interest in cost (3+ / 0-)

      Republicans don't care what the cost of the contractors is.

      They don't care about the government saving money; that's a campaign slogan.

      Their only goal is to use the government to shovel as much cash into the coffers of their corporate sponsors as they can, and defense and national security have long been one of their main funnels.

      I used to work for one of those corporations.  When I made the mistake of pointing out that a system we were selling to the government did not work, I was let go.

      And the beat goes on . . .

      In Washington, whenever anyone does something wrong, everyone else gets punished.
