The Real Reason Republicans –
Hate Social Security, is more that they’ve borrowed so much from the fund, they hate the idea of having to pay it back.
To pay for their wars, their saber-rattling, their juntas, their regime change experts, their extravagance-
Their power mad drunken stupor-
“… The total life-cycle cost for the entire American fleet is estimated to be US$1.51 trillion over its 50-year life…”
What kind of technology lasts fifty years anymore?
A trillion and a half dollars for a weapons system that fewer than 250 Americans will ever be qualified to use against any legitimate enemy, even if it does last fifty years.
Republicans would rather spend money on this, than pay back what they already owe to Social Security.
