Yeah, I think we have enough M1A2Sep2s in the inventory to last us until the new tank comes out in 2017.

No, the law made congress post their financial dealings online. This came from Pelosi's insider trading scandal. Reversing this law will let our congress critters do even more stuff in secret.

I think I found part of the problem

General Dynamics estimated in 2011 that there were more than 560 subcontractors throughout the country involved in the Abrams program and that they employed as many as 18,000 people.
