Also Walkingant, guess how many Federal recognized (not that this is a mandatory thing for legitimacy, but for 8(a) it is) tribes are in Clair Mcaskill's state? You got it, ZERO. I do not think it is a stretch to posit that she may have limited knowledge and first hand experience of dealing with tribes and the issues they face. Yet here she is, another Great White Hope on the Hill, saying she cares and wants to save us from ourselves. Boy that $20 million cap on 8(a) contracts without prior J&A certainly helped the tribes, now they don't have to deal with so many lucrative higher bundled contracts, we can thank the Boeings and Lockheeds now for happily relieving the tribes of some of those burdens. Thanks Clair.
