C-17 FOR AMERICA
Who supports this and why?
I'm not trying to rehash the AirBus vs. Boeing conversation. It is my understanding that the 10 new tankers are truing to be eliminated from the defense budget. However, when I see the banner at the top of the USMB website, run by Boeing and they are trying to tie this contract with American jobs, I wonder who supports it and why?
Would this NOT be like a government handout? We all know how the conservatives hate government handouts...
Cons don't hate government handouts when they go to defense contractors.
Wait a second. Wouldn't that be a little hypocritical of them?
Really, you're going to compare Congress buying 10 more C-17s for use in the Middle East to handouts totally billions of dollars to save failed banks/mortgage lenders all across the country?
So much for intellectual honesty eh?
We dono't need them right now. We are trying to find ways to trim the budget. WHY is this be protrayed as saving Americans jobs? If our government apprved this money for something we don't really need right NOW, then how is it NOT just another government handout?
Now where did that intellectually honest brewerboy go?
Who determines we dont need them right now? Certainly not you. So perhaps you could share your info.
Even comparing ordering 10 more C-17s off of Boeing to the billions we've dumped into companies that are "too big to fail" in the past year is well....retarded. And not really a comparison at all.
