Why can’t government contractors who are paid big bucks for big projects like the Obamacare website do the job right?
The F-35 fighter jet, which is expected to cost the Pentagon some $1.5 trillion over 55 years, has been ridiculed for a laundry list of problems. It has difficulties making some of the maneuvers required in a dogfight. It’s been grounded multiple times for engine troubles. It runs hot, making it difficult for the planes to operate in warm environments.
Yesterday, however, the Lockheed Martin jet finally passed an important milestone. Flying 25,000 feet over Edwards Air Force Base in California, an F-35 successfully destroy a target on the ground. A bomb dropped from the plane destroyed a tank marking the first time a pilot was able to hit the mark from the plane’s cockpit. Wonder if Odumbo's administration can fix Odumbocare as effectively as Lockheed Martin?
Cut the F-35 and cut "Defense" by 80%, then we can insure Americans, fix our infrastructure problems, and revive the economy.

Those are the LAST things reTHUGlicans want to do, of course...

Your own POST, incidentally, makes comparing the F-35 and Obamacare even more ridiculous than it appears at first glance. If a failed F-35 website was all the problems it'd had, the Air Farce would be sitting pretty! LOL

Never been on a government welfare program, but if I needed to be I wouldn't have a problem with it. Y'see, I'm not a right-wing asshat, teabagger, and white-pride militiaman like you, Anus.
If big government means keeping the Republicans in check while helping people, you BET YOUR ASS I'm for it! LOL
You are dependent on the Federal Government Social Welfare Programs otherwise you would against them too like us Democrats are here in Indiana who see the failures of the Social Welfare Programs especially when they are dependent on other peoples wealth which is something you do not have.

Right.
It's Obama's fault.
Everyone was working fine when George Bush approved of the program back in 2001...
That isn't why I posted it, a little while ago you were warbling about the F35 being a waste of money, but all of it's issues have been resolved and it's now our superior military aircraft. Think Odumbocare will work out as well with the numbskulls like Sebilius and Odumbo at the helm? LOL!!!! Not bloody likely.

With Odumbo walking around apologizing to our enemies, I do believe maintaining our military is job 1. My business is directly linked to infrastructure repair, and I still believe we need a sound military. You self absorbed little libturds don't understand that military is an important part of the socialized environment you so embrace.

F35 has been a money pit.

Bush dug the hole and started throwing the money in.

Another military project the right wingers insist we need.

Anything else, dear?

history shows us it is not a friendly place.

Teabag moron:

The beleaguered F-35 program has yet another problem on its hands. Actually, make that 719 problems.

A recent report from the Pentagon’s internal watchdog reveals that the next gen fighter jet is plagued with hundreds of issues. The Defense Department’s Inspector General conducted a series of quality assurance assessments that found the Joint Program Office and Defense Contract Management Agency performed “inadequate oversight,” failing to adhere to widely adopted quality management protocols while losing control of contractors that have already sunk an estimated $400 billion taxpayer dollars into what is the most expensive weapons system ever developed for the U.S. government

In a statement received by Defense News, F-35 JPO spokesman Joe DellaVedova said the report was “thorough, professional, well-documented and useful to the F-35 Enterprise.” He also said many of the issues in the report had been previously documented and addressed, noting that the IG conducted the report between Feb. 2012 and July 2013. Lockheed Martin told ABC News that the IG’s report is “based on data that's more than 16 months old and [a] majority of the Corrective Action Requests identified have been closed.”
