that he demonstrates in handing companies like Carlisle and Haliburton huge contracts.

In the past 20 years, Departments of Transportations have begun to let work to contractors that in the past was done my state employees of the DOT.

So, what you will see with this is more contracts being let to big business, with very little of it reaching the people who will be doing the actual work.

Much has changed since FDR. Mainly, the privatization of the state government through the use of contractors.
