Cut the F-35 and cut "Defense" by 80%, then we can insure Americans, fix our infrastructure problems, and revive the economy.<quoted text>
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?
Those are the LAST things reTHUGlicans want to do, of course...
