$4.4 billion. How many people could pay tuition to go to Harvard for four years full ride, housing, books, food? $300,000? 14,666 kids could go to the best, most expensive, exclusive college probably on Earth for the cost of that boat. How many people could be housed for this money? This boat cost 440 $10 million dollar New York penthouse apartments. Could take 440 bums off the streets of New York, stick them in these apartments and then feed them steak, cavier and a swimming pool full of Boone's Farm wine for the cost of this boat.

This thing should be a luxury liner.

Have to agree with you. Jetson an idiot when it comes to this topic.
Oh wait, he's an idiot when it comes to most topics here.

How much healthcare could be provided?

But Trump wants more ships, 78 more to be exact.

He's so .... so anti-establishment!!

Back in the day one projectile cost $200 and we had two magazines with 1500 rounds each on a Guided Missile Destroyer. We had two stable elements, one in gun plot and one in missile plot. Stable element is a fancy word for gyroscope which gave us the horizontal, vertical and cross roll plane.

I fear our increasing reliance and trust in technology is going to bite us on the ass onw day, really bad.

I know this is a difficult concept for a lot of the far left Bernie loving Socialists ..... But job numer uno of the Federal Government is to provide for the National Defense ... not National Healthcare....that is not even on the list..

I'm not saying that the Defense Department should not be held accountable for what these weapons systems cost....Damn right they should be....But sometime a well designed weapons platform can serve forever....We got B-52's that are older than their pilot's fathers....C-130's will be around 100 years from now.....and for one of these barges we could have up graded all of the Iowa Class battleships into far more effective weapons plat forms....

But these Bernieites that say we spend money on weapons we should be spending on health care or welfare should all be rounded up and sent to Cuba...
