The senator is concerned about rising cost and delayed final product.  

But why rush it?  US has plenty to get by for now.  The final Ford carrier can be quite awesome if given the time required to make it perfect.   It will take decades for Russia and China to come up with anything comparable.

And money should never be an issue with such crucial projects.

Money is at the core of the issue when building an aircraft carrier.


An aircraft carrier is just an expensive toy and an expensive penis.

The current carrier's powerplant's are underpowered for the next upgrade packages.  Mostly the magnetic launch an recovery system that can launch an recover lighter drone aircraft without damaging them.

There's also the lazer anti-missile system's that could be installed in the coming year's.  

The new Ford's are designed with these system's in place an with extra power generation unit's to handle future upgrades.  It's reported at current level's the Ford's are only using 1/3 their total energy output.

American freedom depends on American election results......not on aircraft carrier.

If America chooses Trump.......that means Americans do not deserve to have their freedom and is best that America become irrelevant to the world.

Made in USA...It is going be just another failure project like the F35.

f-35s were released  too early before prototype was finished due to Congressional pressure.  but updates will continue.
