I agree. The F-35 is not needed and is a waste of taxpayer money.

Get rid of it and significantly reduce the size of our military - especially perm bases in Europe.

____________

Can we cut bases in Asia as well?

If a program isn't working, then scrap it. Isn't that the biggest problem with Washington, nobody scraps bad programs whether it's a fighter jet the military didn't even ask for or a health plan that's making the system worse. Maybe it's foriegn aid to a Country that doesn't need or deserve it.

That's why I think all spending programs should come with an expiration date no greater than 10 years out. It would force Congress to re-examine the programs instead of just feeding the beast.
