Rep. Frank LoBiondo, R-N.J., said plans to stop building F-22 Raptors and cut back the planned F-35 Joint Strike Fighter fleet could jeopardize Air Force and Air Guard readiness.
It's an exercise for the reader to guess if this is because:
1. Lockheed is a major donor for LoBiondo
2. LoBiondo thinks the Cold War may turn hot at any moment.
3. LoBiondo doesn't care that the money is better spent on weapons that are actually used.
4. Something else?
