These planes aren't for warfare. These planes are for the welfare for the rich industrialists. If they were about jobs we'd build bridges and high speed rail because not only do they need to be built, the pay off in the commerce they generate for 50 years.
And if they were about war we'd build something relevant to the next war. We can never go to total war against another nuclear power, thus our military today is about fighting Iraq or Somalia and we don't need these super weapons for that, even when they work.
No, this is about channeling money to the super rich and for that it worked marvelously. And now with this breakdown, those industrialists will be getting even more bucks.
But helping turn the 1% into the 0.1% or even into the 0.01% is what the American people want because that is what we keep voting for.
