F-35 $1.3 TRILLION, “Hellfire” missiles=$68,000 per shot, versus a bullet at $8, “no bid contracts” the order of the day in “Defense” and Republican backed programs elsewhere as well (say hello to Halliburton et al). No, that spending narcotic isn’t at all in the hand of the President. Medicare, Social Security, ARE funded by contributions outside the “tax code”, and secure for the next 20 or so years, it is the massive spending on Defense, instead of infrastructure repair, or “people care”, that is the deadliest narcotic. Speaking of which, why DID the REPUBLICANS insist that indeed drug purchases for Medicare not only be “no bid”, but pay the highest premium prices the pharmaceutical companies could come up with ?? Yeah, right, Obama is the one (who doesn’t write budgets, that’s Boehner’s job) causing the “problems”.
