Tricksy Subsidies?

Drain-O anyone?
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-11312819

Of all the whining I've been hearing about the government having to much to do with the common person's life, not often do you hear about where your tax dollars are really going. This story is a case that if looked at close enough should merit further investigation as to where and how our money is actually being spent. Are all of those billions of dolllars that we've spent over the years in the name of defense actually going to R&D of Pentagon ready receivables? Or, in actuality, are we playing the shell game and subsidizing a private company's civilian division? Seems a little shifty and opaque to me. i want to see the checkbook register on this one.

This is what happens when industry gets too big to fail. Who's getting richer and benefiting? Yeah, not you or me. You know, the little guys.

  1. I'm sure we could be saving some money here. Question is, who's going to step up and call it out? Congress? Mr. President?

    Speak up, or get used up!
