No bid contracts on the rise

First rule of government spending under a Republican Administration : Why pay someone to do a job when you can hire a consultant at twice the price.

Second rule : Don't bid the job out to multiple consultants, no-bid it, baby!

And so, the Washington Post reports that more and more government contracts at being put out on a no-bid basis, creating an environment in which even the most ridiculously bad consultants can get hired and charge exorbitant fees. So much for fiscal conservatism from Republicans.
