Doesn't help that we give those billions of dollars away, that we give planes, tanks, helicopters to places like Egypt.......
I'll be honest here, I know a lot of people say the government is to big, and I do work for them by way of working for the Department Of The Army, and I can tell you that on the ground level (us lower level guys) don't have the money, resources, and people to work and support like we should, we too are doing more with less, it's the upper level of the government that's top heavy and they make a hell of a lot more money and better benefits than me or anyone I work around does.
Also you have to think that companies take advantage of the government, if the government needs to buy something from a company or a service they of course gouge the government because they know they can, and don't get me wrong I believe in being able to make a profit, but everyone needs to realize that we end up paying for that higher price.
The system is never going to be perfect and I'm not delusional to think it will ever be, but as long as we have those that are representing us in the government and are above the law, make a shit-ton of money and have the retirement and benefits that they do we will never get them to work for the people like we need them/they way they should. Lower their pay and take away all those benefits that they get and I bet you won't have people trying to get to those jobs like you do now.
