Why

14 Jun

Their approval rating is in the low single digits, and why they ALL must go.

The House Appropriations Committee made clear the way many on Capitol Hill view national defense. By a raised-hands vote of 13 to 23, the Committee rejected an amendment from Congressman Jack Kingston—a Georgia Republican—to redirect $339 million from operation and maintenance funds, deemed excess, to retain 234 A-10 close air support aircraft in the U.S. Air Force inventory.  It (our House of Representatives) could not find a penny to retain one of the most extraordinarily effective weapons in the U.S. arsenal—and one of the cheapest to operate.

Retiring the A-10 will put the lives of American troops at more risk wherever we fight in the next decade. But at least 23 members of the House Appropriations Committee have a different priority.

And, most of them do not want you to know who they are.  This one needs circulation.

    Doing away with the Warthog is a BIG mistake. I have watched the A-10 work and they are awesome! Close air support has always been vital to the troops on the ground and this one is
    good at it…bad to the bone.

    Of course that is probably the reason those cowardly ass wipes in the appropriations committee has killed it. Anything the communists can do to hinder the troops, that’s the name of their game. There will be a stink raised over this and the names of those trying to “hog-tie” our troops will come out. They should be made to pay for this serious transgression either at the voting booth or standing on a trap door.

    Preferably both.

      All 535 should be packed up, with their families, and dropped off in Iraq. Or Iran, or Syria, or Egypt, or Libya, or… any muslim country. And then ask them what weapon they like the best.
