(archived broadcast )
Special Guest: Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky of Illinois

Contractors cost more to do the same job government workers do.

unlike government workers who have whistleblower protections under the law.
Do Republicans love contractors because they are legally required to hide
torture, waste, and abuse by the Bush Administration?
