One Reason I'd Make a Bad Politician
It didn't take long for Washington's senators, along with a number of other political leaders, to express their outrage when the Air Force announced the contract winner for new aerial refueling aircraft--NOT Boeing. When our political leaders get overly involved in these kinds of deals, the tax payer gets stuck with a larger bill and the military gets something that's close to, but not quite, what they need. If Congress gets involved, they will increase the delayed even more while the Air Force's fleet of old planes get older and more worn. Same wasteful ways as before. We can't get a representative or senator to say, "Well, I guess Boeing's bid just wasn't good enough."
