Monday Morning Smile !! Porkulus Bill
Unfortunate, but true...AND we are paying billion$ for the bail out...
AND the scum bags get a big fat bonus...SOMETHINGS NOT RIGHT,
but is Washington doing anything to solve the problem???
The White House Fence
Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House in DC:
One is from New York , another is from Tennessee and the third, is from Florida .
All three go with a White House official to examine the fence
The Florida contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring,
then works some figures with a pencil. "Well," he says, "I figure the job will run
about $900: $400 for materials, $400 for my crew and $100 profit for me."
The Tennessee contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says,
"I can do this job for $700: $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me."
The New York contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the White House
official and whispers, "$2,700." The official, incredulous, says, "You didn't even measure
like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?"
The New York contractor whispers back, "$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire
the guy from Tennessee to fix the fence." "Done!" replies the government official.
And that, my friends, is how government contracting works!
