Fraud and abuse has been a part of government contracting since forever. It's there because contracting is regulated by a set of rules and regulations. Anyone who is willing to bend and break the rules has an advantage and can make money for a time. I've been a contractor for over twenty years and I can guarantee you, nothing changes when a different president takes the helm.

Anyway, to the NYT it's just an opportunity to bash-Bush, and praise D's. Thing is, when you get this blatant, your credibility suffers:

Rep. Waxman is wisely working to map the dimensions of fraud and waste.
I'm sure they meant to say 'the wonderful Rep. Waxman is wisely working'.
