Huh, where do you think the government money comes from for those government contracts if not the tax payers?
You have a logical fallacy.
You are trying to conflate the awarding of government contracts for services rendered as the same as a government gimmee.
Catholic Charities was awarded a government contract in much the same manner as SAIC who was recently awarded a government contract by the U.S. Navy Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific.
I hope you can understand the difference between a contract for work performed and government hand-outs. If PBS wanted to submit a bid and it had to compete with other stations for goverment dollars, then you would have a more accurate comparison.
That being said, even government contracts should be reviewed for their efficiency so I am not opposed to eliminating them if there is a better way or the services simply are not needed.
