do not cancel because we've invested so much- but do better

@B47TKNTGreen from Michigan answered…1mo

Yes, but put research into producing cheaper but more effective jets.

@B478JMTConstitution from Georgia answered…1mo

Discontinue the F-35 which has significantly higher maintenance costs than the F-22 and develop variations of that platform for the US Navy and US Marine Corps.

@WereSoToastDemocrat from Utah answered…4wks

Yes, finish the ones currently in production but do not make more.

No, but maintain use of what we have until other countries begin advancing

@9HNR55RIndependent from New York answered…2yrs

No, but the U.S. should scale back production rather than cancelling it completely.

@Sir-Thomas-(Tom)Veteran from Pennsylvania answered…2yrs

No. $1.5 T is a drop in the ocean compared with other costs. And, aviation is super interesting.

@9HHV8MPDemocrat from Georgia answered…2yrs

Yes and reform contracting procedures to prevent similar mismanagement.

@9HHTS2DVeteran from New York answered…2yrs

No, and the F-22 shouldn't have been canceled, either. Just because neither Afghanistan nor Iraq were able to deploy an aerial threat doesn't mean we shouldn't field interceptors.

@Micah-Stone-[STU…Independent from Nevada answered…2yrs

No, the Air Force should be investing into cyberspace instead of upgrading our fighter jets. We can still choose very few, select bases for the F-35, but not upgrade all Air Force bases to carry the F-35.

@9H9R34FPeace and Freedom from Indiana answered…2yrs

No, as long as the technological advancements can largely be translated to a domestic, non-military use

@Jennifer-Gundlac…Green from California answered…2yrs

At this moment in time, during the COVID pandemic, yes. In spite of the lost jobs, our current economy shouldn't be supported by military spending that isn't related to ending this pandemic.

@9H74QY3Green from Tennessee answered…2yrs

I guess, if it was a decision made as part of overall reduced spending on the military in general? One specific thing isn't the problem.

@9H6ZSY8Green from North Carolina answered…2yrs

US military should cancel production of the F-35 Joist Strike Fighter if there are other options that are more fiscally responsible and more effective.

@Robert-Sanchez-G…Independent from Minnesota answered…2yrs

No, not cancel, but definitely scale back total number of planes to be produced to realize significant savings. Then redistribute a portion of the savings to invest in improved but less costly drone technology, that could be more combat effective than the F-35s.

@9H6V899Peace and Freedom from Kansas answered…2yrs

No, we should drastically cut spending for the program and scale back production until the national debt is lowered. Technology for this program may be dramatically out of date by the time it is complete anyway. There are many more current needs to consider where that funding could be allocated.

@9H6NT9KSocialist from Ohio answered…2yrs

Yes, it drains too many taxpayer dollars and provides them little to no benefit and will only be used to continue ongoing foreign intervention

@9H5H43LWorking Family from Virginia answered…2yrs

Only if it is safer and more cost effective to obtain the information in an alternative way.

@9H55JYRWomen’s Equality from Illinois answered…2yrs

Yes, and we should use that money to restart F-22 and F/A-18 production.

@9H3DKL4Democrat from Illinois answered…2yrs

No, we already spent the money, but there should be much more regulation of taxpayer funds on military R&D that should be limited.

@9H2D6LVWomen’s Equality from North Carolina answered…2yrs

I feel that I do not know enough about this topic to contribute an answer.

@9GZ5LY5Women’s Equality from Washington answered…2yrs

No, but stricter financial oversight of the program needs to be implemented.

@9GXWSNQWomen’s Equality from South Carolina answered…2yrs

No; but investigate and drop all companies who are charging inflated prices.

@9GXVK3HWorking Family from Kansas answered…2yrs

@9GVY5GTTranshumanist from Colorado answered…2yrs

Unless it has done any harm to anyone or anything, then it could be continued. But it all depends if this F-35 fighter will either be a successful multi-dollar product or be an unsuccessful waste of money.

@9GVWGMRWorking Family from Texas answered…2yrs

@9GSXVZ6Republican from Florida answered…2yrs

No, but try to reduce the cost and make all the parts in the U.S.A.

@Beth-SimsGreen from Arkansas answered…2yrs

@9GRS43YDemocrat from Alabama answered…2yrs

No, but future acquisitions must be under more scrutiny for cost and requirement overruns

@9GLWBKMIndependent from Kansas answered…2yrs

No, but production should be slowed until costs are more affordable.

@9GKH5L2Libertarian from Illinois answered…2yrs

No, too much money has been spent on the project to cancel it
