  •  This is a great plan (0+ / 0-)

    but I do have two bones to pick with it. Under cutting pentagon waste:

    Replacing F-35s with F-18s  ($23B)
    Eliminate one Ford-class Carrier  ($14B)
    This is unacceptable. The F-18 is not going to stand up to foreign weapons development for the next 30-40 years, and our carriers allow us to project force around the globe like no other country on the planet. Our carriers are WHY we can laugh at North Korea, Iran, and the warmongers in our country that want to engage them. They simply aren't threats because we can drop marines off at their door step and bomb their capital a few hours after they so much as fart in our direction. Simply put, our aircraft carriers are the largest peace keeping fleet in the world.

    Other than that, this really would be great for our country.
