The Pentagon saves more than three times as much money when companies compete, the AP analysis showed. Yet more than $242 million in federal contracts — representing more than one-fourth of the military's stimulus contract spending so far — has been awarded under the recovery program through no-bid contracts for repairs and maintenance.
Across the government, more than $543 million in federal contracts have been awarded so far without competition under Obama's $787 billion stimulus program.
This means even more tax dollars out of your wallets, folks.
But then, of course, people in the Pentagon and Congress do not care about what those extra taxes mean to your quality of life (or the lack of it).
