Rep. Issa, thank you for this opportunity.

I am an Army Iraq and Afghanistan veteran and while I am not an upper echelon soldier, I see a plethora of ways to save money via cutting contract jobs. I am effectively outsourced (although still deployed and receiving a pay check) due to the overuse of contractors that perform my military occupational specialty. They earn approximately four to six times what I earn per year and do roughly the same job. In light of budget deficits and the eternal partisan bickering over the debt, wouldn't it make sense to limit the amount of contracting that is awarded to these war profiteering companies and give us soldiers our jobs back?

Thank you again for your time and thank you for standing up for my rights back in the States while I fight for yours out here in the middle of nowhere.
