OK

After watching the news, I began to think.  Ok Balance the budget, cut fat, let's get real, and the new Repunks are about to pounce on us in DC.  But lets be real, the very first thing I saw on the 4 Trillion, OMB claims to need to cut, is THERE IS NOT DEFENSE CUTTING

You're kidding me right, you want to cut Social Security, take away the Cost of Living Raise form the poorest of the poor, and leave the 225 an hour consultant alone???  Raise the retirement age again? (PS This shut France down, they actually all walked out and struck against the Government)

Come on, give me a break

Let me point out a few programs that can be cut and only a few very well paid consultants will lose their jobs. Not taking food from the poor

First SeaPort Enhanced

Details

Sponsored by the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) the SeaPort Enhanced Contract is a 15-year, multiple-award ID/IQ contract to provide all aspects of professional support services required by the Navy’s SYSCOMs and their related Program Executive Offices (PEOs) and field activities. The SeaPort Enhanced Contract has a total ceiling of $41.7 billion.

Services Covered under SEAPORT Enhanced

The SeaPort Enhanced Contract provides a vehicle to procure professional program management, engineering, logistics and financial management support services for authorized users through all phases of ship, aircraft, and weapon system life cycle - technology development, concept exploration, design, specification development, construction/production, test and evaluation, certification, operation, maintenance, improvement/ modernization, overhaul and refueling, salvage and disposal.

Did you read it right, 41 MILLION for a vehicle to procure.  Now help me here, but the government currently HAS programs they use to procure, and I can personally think of 3 or 4 major software companies that will do that for free, IF the Government works an exclusive deal with them.  (MS, Oracle, I2 and SAP off  the top of my head)
