Hmmmm ... I wonder what the impact of federal infrastructure spending would be if Congress were to impose a mandatory, iron-clad ceiling on the amount of cost mark-up and profit that companies are allowed to make from federal government contracts.

This would not be an end to capitalism, but merely a common-sense method of finally grabbing runaway government contract fraud by the balls and reigning it in.

Naaaaaaaaah ... never happen.
