The Pentagon has decided to continue "low-rate" production of the F-35 stealth jet, reportedly the most advanced, expensive and dysfunctional weapons program in U.S. history - this, despite an estimated pricetag of $1 trillion to operate a fleet of 2,443, a history so troubled that NATO allies are meeting next month to reconsider their stated commitment to it, and a current morass that has left the best fighter pilots from the Air Force, Marines and Navy hanging out in Florida for a year, taxiing F-35 Joint Strike Fighters up and down the runway because they can't be flown. Your tax dollars at work.
