    reports about how the government outsources data mining because they can't afford to match the salaries of the private sector.  What happens with lower paid temporary workers replace the people now working at those companies?  

    •  Taxpayer money laundering to campaign donations (0+ / 0-)

      They're likely paying far more to private contractors than it would cost to employ these people as government employees.

      Unfortunately, the Hatch Act forbids soliciting campaign contributions from government employees.  The solution is to contract everything out, then raise campaign money from the contractors and their workforce.  The GOP perfected this trick at the state level, then brought it to the federal level. DLC Dems have adopted it as well.
