Hmmmm. I wonder why that is so. . .
F-22 Raptors cost $355,000,000 a pop.
F-35 Lightnings cost $239,000,000 a pop.
C-17 Globemasters cost $202,000,000 in 1998 dollars.
Littoral Combat ships cost over $600,000,000 each.
The new national security cutter costs $536,000,000.
MRAPs cost at least $1,000,000 a pop.
BTW, the F-22s had to go into the shop for corrosion repairs, the F-35 still has not flown above 40,000 feet, the C-17 assembly line is getting shut down in 2009, the Littoral Combat ships have increased in cost by 300%, the Deepwater program is on the ropes, and the US Military uses 340,000 barrels of oil a day.
You're probably scratching your head asking "Huh? Where did he get those numbers?" I post daily at democraticunderground in the Veterans forum.
