“Privatization” is wrecking the US budget

From Say It Ain’t So Already:

Check out how defense spending has skyrocketed since 2001 when Donald Rumsfeld began moving defense contracts to the “more efficient” private sector:

Bush’s term: January 20, 2001 – January 20, 2009 – the budget was more than doubling every year. Looks like ‘private’ sources were either padding more and more or getting half as efficient every year. My guess: both. – FRL

    These huge spikes are thanks to Reagan and the Bushes. Grover Norquist would be proud.
