Here is a great editorial from Ronald Regan’s former Secretary of the Navy John Lehman (also a member of the National Defense Commission and served on the Sept 11th Commission). It lays out the real story that the engine would save tax payer dollars and in his own words, “the power of competition has been shown again and again to drive innovation, lower costs and spur contractor responsiveness.”
