Outsourcing National Security

There is a storm brewing in that billions of US taxpayer money are being offshore outsourced to build critical national defense technology and Congress is feigning outrage on it.

Sen. Murrary:

Mr. President, last Friday, I stood on the floor of the 767 line with workers in Everett, Washington, who put their heart and soul into making Boeing airplanes. I was there as those workers learned that after 50 years the Air Force no longer wants them to build its refueling tankers.
I saw the dismay in their eyes as they learned that their government is going to outsource one of the largest defense contracts in history – to the French company Airbus. It was devastating news for Boeing, for American workers, and for America’s men and women in uniform
