Failed priorities, failed right wing economic policies
John Boehner was one of the worst offenders for catering to war profiteering making duplicate engines for every fuselage in his own district, to keep getting re-elected. Congress, particularly our Republican and Tea Party members, have been pushing projects that are failures, and trying to push them on our allies as well. Far too often they are pushing on our military equipment and systems the military DOES NOT WANT. This is exactly the military industrial complex that great presidents, like Eisenhower, have warned against. this represents the choices of corruption and redundant death equipment, not legitimate military defense, over investments in science and life. Science R&D consistently is an economic multiplier, producing multiple dollars in return for every dollar put into research.
