Senate has voted to strip $1.75 Billion for F-22s from the Defense Bill
The Senate voted 58-40 to delete financing for seven more F-22 warplanes from a defense spending bill, handing President Obama a victory in his effort to reshape the military's priorities. Mr. Obama threatened to veto the $679.8 billion spending bill if it included any money for the planes, which had highlighted a larger battle over his push to shift the Pentagon's resources from conventional warfare to fighting insurgencies.
Okay, that's fine. 1.75 - but WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER 680 BILLION?!
Man, that Air Show is going to suck this year without new Raptors.
