Citizens Against Government Waste to Boeing: Up Yours

The DC-based group named Rep. Norm Dicks, along with Todd Tiahrt (R-Kans), April's Porkers of the Month for their attempts to stop funding for the Air Force tanker contract that passed up Boeing Company.

Citizens Against Government Waste accuses the two of trying to undermine the government procurement process to direct business to the Boeing manufacturing facilities in their states. Of course, the reps aren't the only ones questioning the sagacity of the Air Force contract with Airbus to purchase the enormous tankers.

But this is government spending in a big election year so I'd expect the lobbyists, watchdog groups, and other politicos are nowhere close to being done giving their two cents on this one. Read the entire CAGW press release here.
