    All kidding aside, its a great diary and the privatization scam is high on the GOP's agenda.

    IIRC, a study was done several years ago when the Federal Govt. wanted to privatize payroll services or somesuch.  It showed it would be cheaper to have it done in house.  It slowed the privatization cavalcade temporarily, but not for long.

    Here's my question: Why does the federal government need to pay private institutions to finance its own projects? Smells fishy, kind of like campaign money laundering.

      I didn't realize how far along the privatization plans/scams were
      until I started digging into the topic a few weeks.

      this one is flying WAY below the radar.

      and it will cause a lot of good employees,
      to lose their "family wage" jobs.

      Why Do Republicans hate "family wage" jobs?

      thx Betty Pinson for the comments.

      I dream of things that never were  -- and ask WHY NOT?
