Stolen from a private share...How the Government works
Three contractors are bidding to repair a fence at the White House, and they meet with a White House facilities staffer to examine the fence.
The first contractor is from Minnesota. He measures the area to be repaired, and comes back with a bid of $900. $400 for materials, $400 for labor, and $100 profit.
The second contractor, from Tennessee, bids $700 - $300 each for materials and labor, and $100 profit.
The last contractor is from Chicago. Without measuring anything, he bids $2,700. The White House staffer is confused, and asks "Why is your bid so much higher, and why didn't you look at the job?"
The last contractor replies "Easy - $1000 for me, $1000 donation to your party, and we subcontract the guy from Tennessee to fix the fence."
The contract is awarded to the Chicago firm.... #usa #evil #government #control #plutocracy #oligarchy #money
