Letters: Accountability should apply to all

AnchorageJanuary 12, 2014 

I would like to be a government contractor. I could kick back and get paid megabucks for supposedly overseeing a giant project and when it becomes a failure and the city tries to sue me I can claim that I’m a government contractor and that relieves me of all that. 

Now that is what I call free enterprise. In this day and age with little government there are no protections against this kind of corruption. I would personally like to see government protecting the rights of cities, states and workers but others say free enterprise is self-governing. Ha ha — remember the banks that couldn’t fail. 

This needs to go all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary and it should get a lot more public attention than it is getting now.
