$ 1,000 contribution by Vought Aircraft Industries part of The Carlyle Group
$ 2,000 from U.S. Oncology an affiliate of Welsh, Carson, Anderson and Stowe
TXU finished 2006 with record profits then tried to make their $2.5 billion bottom line old news with the merger announcement. Vought spent the last few years on the Texas and federal government corporate tit. They showed their allegiance to the Lone Star state by locating their new production facility in Charleston, South Carolina to be near Senator Lindsay Graham. U.S. Oncology bought out Texas Oncology a few years back and WCAS needs to keep their franchise strong. If anyone can help these corporations get the government support they need, it's Mike!
