Bloomberg: 70 per cent of the economic stimulus went to defense contractors
June 11 (Bloomberg) -- 141,262 contractors split nearly $533 billion in U.S. government federal contracts. A Bloomberg Government study shows the top 200 contractors get two-thirds of federal contracting dollars.
Bloomberg's Megan Hughes reports on Bloomberg Television's "InBusiness."
Defense contractors picked up 70 per cent of the stimulus, with Lockheed-Martin hauling in $42.9 billion.
Apparently Obama talked infrastructure, but the Congress spent the money on defense.
