We’re not exactly, um, huge fans of the President, but we’ll give credit where it’s due. The President recently won a battle to stop the purchase of F-22 jets, saving $1.75 billion:
On Monday, Mr Obama wrote to Senator McCain to seek his support, saying: “We do not need these planes. To continue to procure additional F-22s would be to waste valuable resources that should be more usefully employed to provide our troops with weapons that they actually do need.”
The President hailed the Senate result, saying the alternative would have been an inexcusable waste of money at a time when the US was fighting two wars and facing a serious deficit.
This year’s deficit is 1.2 Trillion. So good job, President. Only $1,198,250,000,000 to go.Published in
