The Haves and the Have Nots.
In the case of the US government, this refers to the upper echelon of officials, like the Senators, Representatives, Judges, Mayors, City Managers, and GS agents, while also referring to the low end of the pay scale, like cops, firefighters, soldiers, staffers, office workers, IT people, teachers, and record pushers.
Obama was never very good about saving money, not when undocumented billions float around overseas.
It’s like he didn’t even bother to try saving American taxpayers money, as the national debt spiraled out of control during Obama’s regime and failed programs like Obamacare drained even more from the pool.
Now, another story of reckless government spending and a lingering “why Kenya…?” question:
Our story revolves around the Haves, or L3 Technologies (an Air Force recognized Crème de la crème), and the Have Nots, or IOMAX USA, the lower life form that apparently cannot get noticed even when it’s attempting to save both our government and foreign governments money.
In addition, they have the experience and reliability necessary for the job (for which they were never notified) in order to complete it in a timely and cost-effective way. By comparison, L3 has never made such products.
“A group of lawmakers is planning to request a congressional investigation of a $418 million U.S. weapons sale to Kenya approved by the Obama administration on its last day in office.
The sale, approved by the State Department and privately notified to Congress on January 19, would allow Kenya to buy 14 weaponized crop-duster-like planes — including two trainer planes and services, for missions against terrorist group al-Shabaab.
The deal was publicly announced the Monday after Trump’s inauguration.
A handful of lawmakers, led by Rep. Ted Budd (R-NC), are questioning why the contract to produce the planes was awarded to major defense firm L3 Technologies — which has never produced such a plane — while a smaller, disabled veteran-owned company in North Carolina that already make those planes at a lower cost was not considered.
The Mooresville, N.C. company, IOMAX USA Inc., costed out 14 planes at $237 million dollars, according to a Budd aide.
‘It looks like politics,’ Budd said in a phone interview with Breitbart News on Monday. ‘Why are they sending it to someone that’s produced zero, for twice the price? This is inappropriate.’
It’s a safe bet to say that if Obama’s administration made this deal happen on his very last day in office, that “something smells rotten in Denmark.”
Or in this case, Kenya.
And by the way, if you want an example of a president who SAVES America money, look at Donald Trump.
While Obama did THIS, Trump renegotiated a major program that he found far too expensive; as a businessman, he didn’t like the deal and he got a better one. That’s how you run a business and a country, people.
