Boeing has been ripping off taxpayers by charging outrageous prices for a variety of helicopter spare parts.

One part, a straight pin, was marked up by an astonishing 177,000 percent. That's like paying $71.01 for one after-dinner mint. But that's only the beginning.

Boeing charged taxpayers $381.78 per unit for bolt retainers when the retail price was just $6.77. A sleeve bushing? Retail price: $8.88. Price for taxpayers: $327.60. And the list goes on.

At the end of the day, for 18 of the parts reviewed in the report, the Army should have paid only $10 million instead of the nearly $23 million it paid to Boeing.

But here's the kicker: the Army is refusing to seek refunds for millions of dollars even though the Pentagon's own top watchdog recommended it do so.

If you think this is as outrageous as we do, click the link in the video or at the top of this description to tell the army what you think.
