continued-- aircraft refueling tankers, which they finally awarded to Boeing, after a bribery scandal by a Boeing exec and a second round when Boeing was NOT the low bidder? Really, 179 tankers? How about the mandate that, wherever possible, the military use "alternative fuels (which cost much more than plain old bunker oil, gasoline, or JP4? How about the mandate which requires large, prime contractors to subcontract some percentage of the work to small businesses? And on and on--I would gladly take on the task for just 1% of the savings.
