It wouldn't surprise me if, due to the backlash from decades of government waste, inefficiency, union pandering and government grab of big healthcare, we see the privatization of many functions the government has historically held (as has become the norm in military operations these days). This will be mainly propped up by the "new" politicians as reducing waste and spending. Ultimately, it will be more about moving the "thorns" (difficult and expensive) out of their sides and appeasing the smaller government crowd.

I doubt we'll see a whole lot of majority foreign entities taking these roles, although I could see "global" companies (BAE Systems and the like) picking some of them up. But, since guvment can't seem to generate a single job lately, I see them writing the rules so that most of the jobs and control would have to be based stateside, at least for the near term.

Scary? Probably not any more scary than privatization of combat forces to private security contractors...
