Everyone is doing it and the joke is on the US taxpayers... especially the middle class who are just trying to make ends meet.

Most definitely. We are talking multiple companies conspiring together to rig contract bidding. Sounds like the government needs to hire more auditors... add jobs to the economy + saves taxpayers from crooks.
