Wrong - the government of the right has corrupted our military-industrial complex. It is mind boggling how much waste, inefficiency and corruption has been permitted by the right in the name of patriotism, capitalism and freedom. This could only happen because the right is corrupt morally, intellectually and economically.

We see that every day in the arrogance of the right.

The article mentions two prominent GOP politicians who made it their life's work to reel in Pentagon waste.

Taibbi points fingers at both Democrats and Republicans who sit on powerful committees for Pentagon procurement and who are supported by lobbyists from the MIC.

Taibbi mentions several times, and quotes several governmental sources, that Pentagon waste will not stop until we make laws which stop deep pocketed lobbyists from controlling government contracts and Congress members.

p.s. I consider myself a Social Democrat, not a DSA member.
