“Under the Bush Administration, the “shadow government” of private
companies working under federal contract has exploded in size. Between
2000 and 2005, procurement spending increased by over $175 billion
dollars, making federal contracts the fastest growing component of
federal discretionary spending. … Federal spending on Halliburton
contracts increased over 600% between 2000 and 2005.”
