Ignored by the mainstream media, President Obama has been changing government rules to prevent agencies from using private firms in order to reduce costs. Typically, that raises costs to taxpayers by as much as 30 percent.
The effort to stifle competition and require that unionized government employees perform work that private companies did previously began just after Obama took office. It is a new phenomenon called “in-sourcing.”
“What that means is they are actually canceling contracts with private companies, including small businesses, and moving the work back in-house and having government employees do the work,” John M. Palatiello, president of the Business Coalition for Fair Competition, tells Newsmax.
