Even More "Without the Feds, How Could We Survive"?

$300 million straight into the porcelain tubes.

They are the two ships no one wanted, almost constantly embroiled in one dispute or another for the past 25 years. The two Navy behemoths have never gone on a mission, were never even completed, yet they cost taxpayers at least $300 million.

Now the vessels, the Benjamin Isherwood and the Henry Eckford, are destined to leave Virginia waters for good and be scrapped at a Texas salvage yard, with no money coming back to the U.S. Treasury.

Yah, duh, a lot of Pentagon types could be eliminated, too. Along with whatever Congress-slime that was not taken out with the trash in the '10 election.
