CNS, a corporate combination led by Bechtel National promised it could save the Department of Energy more than 3 billion bucks, running 2 shops in its nuclear weapons program. They haven’t come close. So why, investigative reporter Patrick Malone of the Center for Public Integrity asks, does the Government keep giving them big profit bonuses?
CNS’ plan was simple, fire workers and cut benefits to those who aren’t let go.
Guess what. They did both, but the costs of nuclear weapons keep going up.
