The F-35 is the poster child for what's wrong in Washington. At an outrageous cost of $1.5 trillion, it is the most expensive weapon program the world has ever seen.
Even worse, it doesn't work as intended and funnels money away from other priorities needed to fight 21st century threats and strengthen America.
Yet Lockheed Martin and an army of lobbyists are determined to protect their cash cow and record profits by pressuring Congress to keep the F-35 alive. The F-35 is a bad deal for America and it's time to stop it.
Rather than throwing good money after bad, Congress should not spend another penny on the troubled F-35.
