From what I have read, it is a boomdoggle. Taxpayers are being taken again. Two years over due, at a cost of $13 billion. 20% over original price. They say it will not be ready til 2017.

What do we expect from something named after Gerald Ford?  I don't really see why we need another aircraft carrier either.  We already have 19 of the things.

39 The number of aircraft carriers in service worldwide

The United States and the nations of the Indo-Asia-Pacific region account for the vast majority of carriers in use. Outside of these craft, 10 other aircraft carriers are in operation.

France has four. Italy has two.

Brazil, Russia, Spain and the United Kingdom each has one.

* Includes super carriers, fleet carriers, light aircraft carriers, escort carriers, helicopter carriers and helicopter destroyers. Total of In service, Under Construction, and Planned totals are not cumulative given the decommissioning of older ships.

Thailand really does not need a carrier. They can not afford it. If it was up to me, I would cancel the U.S.S. Ford class.

$13 billion dollars goes to the manufacturing, iron workers, welders, electricians, weapons manufactures, computer technicians, delivery of parts services(railroads) and so on.. 

 

Where do you think the $13billion goes? ..

I know where it goes. For that kind of money it should be working.

You can't just slap money down and expect whatever your building to be up and running just because the money is spent. Lol.

Personally I'd like to see it go into the aging electrical grid, bridges, bypasses and such.  Just my opinion though.  I don't understand why we need another carrier when we already have as many as everyone else combined.

If it does not work it should not be built. It is 2 years overdue. Monopoly at work. No competition.

I think it is stupid we spend all this money on war machines. Why? Is America going to lock down the world? We cry about other countries having weapons, look at our arsenals. The world should be nervous. America is a war machine with a steady stream of fighters volunteering for service. How convenient. TV and propaganda much.
