I work in a building that has a Government Contractor as a tenant. While passing the elevators this morning I overheard the following:
Man 1: "We plan to get rid of all Government Contractors that are not Government employees"
Man 2: "Hey, that's us!"
I have no idea what the scope of the larger conversation was, such as if this was just concerning one Government project, one Governmental Department, or something being considered Government-wide. However, with Government contractors having the label as 'beltway bandits' I wonder if they might be on an Obama Administration's 'hit list'.
Of course these contractors would have to be replaced with Government employees. Probably more than they get rid of if you make the (safe) assumption that the Government will be less efficient than a contractor to accomplish the same amount of work.
