    The Pentagon has said for years that the military has more infrastructure than it needs, but has been prohibited from doing any work on reducing that infrastructure. In 2016, they released a study, saying that their infrastructure was 22% overcapacity. Broken down by service, the Army was found to be 33% overcapacity, the Navy and Marine Corps 7%, the Air Force 32% and the Defense Logistics Agency 12%.

    National defense as a jobs and economic program.
    If they would just admit this! But it would be embarrassing, because some of the most vociferous Camp Swampy defenders are also trying to carry the contradictory label of "budget hawks."

    If the American public falls for a "border adjustment tax" as Mexico paying for the wall, instead of the American public, then I'll be sure that the country has lost its collective mind...

    They were expecting the F-35 to be in widespread service by now, so they don't have replacement parts.
