That’s what Juneau Sen. Bill Ray said to some Democratic presidential campaign, when they sought his help. So if I get in front of the Granite Construction PAC, that’s what they’re thinking. Here’s the answer: you get entitlement reform. It’s the only way to get it, through a BBA. There will be no real pressure on military construction, at least long term, because that’s not where the money is. It’s all going to entitlements. Reform entitlements, and we can return to normal budgeting, which will allow a normal percentage to construction. I’d like to get in front of some defense contractors, like Lockheed, make the same pitch.
Makes sense to me.
