Tom Coburn just stood up there on Mourning Joe and lied from stem to stern

And none of the so-called news people challenged any of his lies.

Someone should tell Coburn that the B-2 Bomber is one of those billion dollar aircraft that he says doesn't exist

1. Coburn is the GOP's old reliable on Morning Scab

He will say anything to bash Obama and push the GOP agenda.

2. The media will no longer challenge lies

Their job is no longer to report facts, only to provide the propaganda set forth by the corporation they work for.

4. I was just happy to hear a Republican talking about cutting the military

so for the moment I am willing to ignore this discrepancy.

Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit

~snip~

Development originally started under the "Advanced Technology Bomber" (ATB) project during the Carter administration, and its performance was one of the reasons for his cancellation of the B-1 Lancer. ATB continued during the Reagan administration, but worries about delays in its introduction led to the reinstatement of the B-1 program as well. Program costs rose throughout development. Designed and manufactured by Northrop Grumman with assistance from Boeing, the cost of each aircraft averaged US$737 million (in 1997 dollars). Total procurement costs averaged $929 million per aircraft, which includes spare parts, equipment, retrofitting, and software support. The total program cost including development, engineering and testing, averaged $2.1 billion per aircraft in 1997.
