Obama Continues to Destroy Private Sector
By Jerry A. Kane
Barack Obama’s bread and circuses administration has excluded an American aircraft manufacturer from building anti-terror weaponry in favor of a government-controlled company in Brazil that does business withIran.
Company officials are “confounded and troubled” by last Thursday’s decision to exclude Hawker Beechcraft from building the light attack armed reconnaissance aircraft for the U.S. Air Force.
“We have followed the Air Force’s guidance close, and … submitted the most capable, affordable and sustainable light attack aircraft.”—Hawker Beechcraft news release
For two years the company worked with the Air Force and spent more than $100 million to meet military requirements. The $1 billion project would have kept about 1,400 employees in 20 states working on the company’s AT-6 and T-6 programs.
“This contract is critical both to our nation’s security and to jobs …”—U.S. Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS)
This is the second billion-dollar giveaway the bread and circuses administration has handed the Brazilian government this year. In March the Destroyer guaranteed $1.5 billion in loans to Brazil for offshore oil drilling while he declared a moratorium on offshore drilling at home, sacrificing 20,000 jobs.
Obama is destroying America’s private sector, but Americans seem to be too preoccupied to care.
Let the old world make believe
It’s blind and deaf and dumb
Nothing can the shape of things to come
