I love this country, I served in the military. Why are soldiers coming back from the middle east and not getting the attention they deserve?

One way to help the economy: NOT take away the private sector jobs that have been and will continue to be the thriving point of our economy. The government is trying to take away private sector jobs (which is mostly made up of minority owned and small businesses) to turn them into governmental jobs. This is the process of insourcing. The government says that it's motive behind this process is that they will save money. On August 9th, Defense Secretary Robert Gates announced that the insourcing directive was NOT saving money. Some say that because Gates said this that the insourcing directive is dead. That is the furthest from the truth that someone could get. Other agencies are still insourcing. This is NOT going to help the people, our economy, and especially NOT the government. How is any of this a good idea!?
