The Pentagon's internal investigator is accusing the Defense Department of wasting $26.3 million buying repair parts for the military's signature multipurpose vehicle: the Humvee.
Like any frustrated motorist gouged on repair bills, taxpayers have had to shell out $26.3 million too much to fix the Pentagon's fleet of Humvees, the military's watchdog said. That's because Pentagon officials never checked price or sales data for replacement parts designed to keep the vehicles running.
Prominent Republicans see no evidence that their party's electoral successes have advanced the cause of limited government and moral governance.
Ms. de Rugy said, but warned that little will likely be done.
“The problem is the incentives within government are what lead to this type of thing,” said Veronique de Rugy, senior research fellow at the Mercatus Center for market studies at George Mason University.
