Walter Reed and the Forest Service

What is the connection between Walter Reed and the Forest Service? They are both victims of President Bush’s program of privatization. While scape goats were found to punish for the Hospital scandal the fact remains that the building in question was the victim of the bidding process as was clearly stated on the front page of yesterday’s newspaper.
Privatization to this administration is to bid for services and award to the lowest bidder without regard to the mission to be accomplished. Dedicated public servants in the hospitals and in the National Parks are being replaced by minimum wage employees many of whom are probably in this country illegally. As President Truman once said,” The Buck Stops Here”. It is time for our current President to do the same and accept that his program is hurting America.
