Obama and Congress right to kill F-22 purchase

I like the F-22. I named my cat Raptor after this plane. It is designed to defeat any plane in existence. However, Al Qaeda and the Taliban don't have any existing aircraft. Even if they somehow hijack another civilian aircraft, older model F-15's and F-16's would be more than enough to shoot down an unarmed subsonic plane.

Senator Chris Dodd, a supporter of the purchase, argued that 95,000 jobs could be put at risk. If over a trillion dollars of deficit spending isn't helping to reduce the unemployment rate, that's a big clue that government spending isn't the way to create jobs.

This is a small step in the right direction. It's nice to know that a program can be frivolous enough to get axed.
