Letter: Obama administration might allow some outsourcing

Regarding "Obama will cut outsourcing"

Typical Democratic position on outsourcing.

However, [the] comments and the article do not match actual views of the forthcoming administration. [The] basic conclusion of the new regime, in my opinion, [is] if [it is] truly cost effective to outsource a government activity (stimulates employment in the private sector and makes government more efficient), then this would be appropriate. Laws restricting such competetion will sooner or later be abolished.
