“I don’t have a good answer for you,”
The Senate Armed Services Committee found out in 2004! that KBR is overcharging our government.
In testimony yesterday, auditors recounted how they had turned up more than $1 billion in questionable costs. “Improvements have been made, but to say that everything is perfect — I wouldn’t go that far,” said Patrick J. Fitzgerald, the Army’s auditor general.
Why not? What is he waiting for? Better weather? Oh—it’s not his money!
At the same time the White House and the Democrats who control Congress are eager to find new sources of cash without raising tax rates.
Yet, the solution is very easy:
- Get rid of the “I don’t know a thing” wannabe managers.
- Implement leadership.
- Enforce the laws and existing regulations.
How in God’s name can it be that a company can overcharge our business administration MBA President and his administration by a whopping 1 Billion Dollar?
- Put those in charge of stealing money from our society into jail and at least freeze all of their assets.
- Find all the other companies that happily do the same.
Wouldn’t you agree that once that mud is cleaned up—there is a good chance taxes could actually go down?
- Teach and enforce ethical behavior in business
Doesn’t it make you sick to see how Billions of Dollars are wasted and the only answer one get’s is “I don’t know”?
