    according to the wingers if it is "entitlements" but not if it is corporate welfare which includes defense spending because that really is all that it is.

    never really understand how defense contractors could profit off defense of the country, I mean everyone needs to make money, but profiteering is rampant. why not cost plus??

    plenty of fat to be cutw/o thinking of touhing earned benefits. wingers cry about entitlement, well biggest hit is medical cost, NOT cost of medicare. let them pass laws that allow US to negotiate drug prices and reduce health costs...much more productive than cutting benefits.

    mittens=edsel. no matter how much money is spent to promote it, if the product sucks, no one will buy it.

      In an industry that continuously, for decades, produces items far beyond cost?

      What they really need is a contract that says "The United States will buy X joint strike fighters.  The cost to the United States will be Y.  The selling company will be responsible for all cost overruns.  The selling company will be responsible for the entire cost of fixing any faults found on the joint strike fighter, for the the next ten years."
