The Offense contractors are some of the biggest campaign contributors to our congressional delegation. The delegation has voted for almost every defense contract put before them. As long as the companies and the military spend a little of it in Alaska, billions in unnecessary spending gets authorized. The tax payers of every state but Alaska are getting screwed big time.
