Complaining about Congress is practically a national pastime, so I know I won’t be breaking new ground here. But recently, Congress introduced an amendment that would end production of the F-35B.

As a result we will aid our adversaries in closing the gap between American air superiority and their own, reducing our global power and putting our armed service members at greater risk. This is simply unacceptable.
