Kenneth Ambrose, an executive with H211, said the company bought "the only fuel available at Moffett" and pays "full retail for hangar space that includes none of the ground support typically included at business aircraft hangars." He added that the total value of H211's payments and scientific flights means NASA and taxpayers are "$2 million a year to the good from our presence at Moffett."

In total, H211 has bought 2.3 million gallons of jet fuel since early 2009, according to Pentagon records viewed by The Wall Street Journal, paying an average $3.19 per gallon.

Mr. Fitts provided figures showing that CAA members paid an average of $4.35 a gallon across the U.S. over that period.

That's nothing compared to what Halliburton charged .

March 15, 2005

Iraq needed fuel. Halliburton Co. was ordered to get it there quick. So the Houston-based contractor charged the Pentagon $27.5 million to ship $82,100 worth of cooking and heating fuel.

Halliburton spokeswoman Wendy Hall said the figures were taken out of context.

"The implication is definitely misleading," Hall said. "Transporting fuel into Iraq was a mission fraught with danger, which increased the prices that firms were willing to offer for transportation."

Just another way the 1% are screwing the rest of us. They have a sense of entitlement that would make a welfare queen blush! Let them pay market value for their fuel like the rest of us!

Yes, I'm sure they did their job.

Why didn't FAUX expose the fraud George was?

When the deal was struck in 2007?

Poor teabagger.

The taxpayer subsidizes jet fuel for billionaires?

And then they hide their wealth off shore like
Romney and get out of paying taxes.

The privileged classes.

Billionnaires that aid the NSA in spying on innocent citizens who exercise their right to freedom of speech. That is the way I see it and those social networking sites are IMO an arm of that spy network.

Well why dont we look at the real facts.
Schmidt gave the individual maximum contribution limit of $4,800 apiece ($2,400 for primary election funds and $2,400 for the general election) to Sens. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), and Harry Reid (D-Nev.). Schumer sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee on Antitrust, Competition Policy, and Consumer Rights -- the subcommittee that is investigating Google's dominance of the Internet search industry.

Schmidt also made two $2,000 contributions to Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.); a $2,400 and a $2,000 contribution to Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.); one-time $2,000 contributions each to Sens. Ron Wyden (D-Oregon) and Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.); and $1,000 contributions to Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) and Reps. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), Maurice Hinchey (D-N.Y.), and John Garamendi (D-Calif.).

Using OpenSecrets, MoneyWatch also compiled a list of the lawmakers to whom Google employees and its political action committee (known as NetPAC) donated the most in 2010. The table below breaks down contributions from NetPAC as well as from individuals associated with Google, and lists the top 15 recipients. The top 9 recipients of Google's largesse in 2010 were Democrats, as were 12 of the top 15 overall.
Or in other words Google is a sugar daddy for the DEMOCRATS, not Mitt Romney
