Aspin a member of the House armed services committee and a former economic advisor in the defense department described the action As a a terrible ?� a the reason Lockheed May fold is that it was poorly managed. At one Point it was losing Money in four separate defense contracts including the c5-a,�?� Aspin said. A that is no Small ?� a now we Are told by the administration that to save this so called vital company which has already Cost the taxpayers tens of millions of dollars we must provide it with a Federal subsidy so that it can produce the Tri Star a non government commercial Jet. A oif we subsidize Lockheed to be consistent we should subsidize every company in the United states that is in trouble. But you done to see the administration Rushing to help Small and medium size companies that Are in financial Straits a the first District congressman said.
