Pentagon ending F-22 and Presidential Helicopter programs

25 posts in this topic

But Bethesda, Md.-based Lockheed, the nation's largest defense contractor, has said almost 95,000 jobs could be at stake if the Pentagon didn't buy more of the planes.

Buy them or we'll fire thousands of people. Great marketing there....

The f-22 was a debacle, it's an amazing machine but really the F-35 is just fine for most requirements

From what my brother told me the main general who pushed the F-22 through congress later was a contractor for lockheed

I don't really have a problem with the new helicopters and they should replace them eventually when the bugdet isn't such an issue

Lockheed makes both the F22 and the F35. It shouldn't make any difference to them.

    • You would think, after years of childish behavior by many politicians that THIS is now the time to start "adulting" in DC. Maybe my gerrymandered district is about to get hit and made more competitive?  Or the demographics show my white, conservative base shrinking over the next decade?  Regardless, this is a great time to start reaching across the aisle to give those independent voters something to think about. Given that Bernie is going to throw out a universal coverage law, this might put a little motivation on the right to do some fixing to Obamacare instead of going full "socialist" with Universal Heathcare (how turrrrribbble!!).  Sometimes, you have to pick your battles, and what we've seen thus far is Trump's battles stink.
    • Based on that article, it seems that a sale will only be made if the buyer agrees to not move the team out of Charlotte. I hope that holds up.
