Chalk up another victory for Obama’s economic platform:
A new investigative report released by Accuracy in Media Wednesday, reveals that CH2M HILL, a Colorado-based consulting, engineering and construction firm, received nearly $2 Billion in stimulus funding despite a history of kickbacks, poor conduct and contaminating their own workers. While they are not in danger of suffering the same bankruptcy plight as Solyndra, CH2M has laid-off thousands of workers since receiving taxpayer stimulus. And like Solyndra, CH2M has donated thousands in campaigns finances to Democrats.

And then consider the likely answer: Giving over $380,000 to Democrats during the 2009-2010 cycle and over $512,000 during 2007-2008, including $45,337 to Barack Obama.
In free market economies, where pure capitalism is exercised, companies that do the best work get rewarded with the most business. In government-managed economies, where crony capitalism reigns, the companies with the best political connections get the most business.
