With 229 Days till the general election to be held 6 November 2012 I present to you Obama Accomplishment #228.
Killed the F-22: In 2009, ended further purchases of Lockheed Martin single-seat, twin-engine, fighter aircraft, which cost $358 million apiece. Though the military had 187 built, the plane has never flown a single combat mission. Eliminating it saved $4 billion.
So we don’t need to have the best available equipment for our Air Force. The F-15 the F-22 replaces can do the job and there’s no need to improve our air fighting capabilities…. tell that to the pilots and their families. As usual the easy way to make it appear like your administration cares about the federal budget deficit is to cut one of the ONLY things that you’re Constitutionally mandated to provide funds for… that is National Defense. Lets not take on the entitlement programs that are really bankrupting the Nation lets cut the national defense budget. Brilliant
