Under Obama the United States Air Force now has one-quarter of the number of fighter squadrons it had 25 years ago and only two-thirds of active-duty airmen. The ‘Top Brass’ are begging Congress to put a halt to the massive cuts to the military budget stressing that U.S. air superiority is at ‘great risk.’

‘Enough is enough,’ Air Force Secretary Deborah James told lawmakers in the House of Representatives as she defended a Pentagon budget request that exceeds federal spending caps. ‘Given the state of the world … the number one thing we have to stop is this downsizing.’

But members of the defense appropriations subcommittee said President Barack Obama’s 2016 Pentagon base budget of $534 billion exceeded spending caps by nearly $35 billion and would have to be cut.

The budget Obama has submitted exceeds Congress’ spending cuts so it’s frankly it’s a ‘political fantasy’ says Rep. Tom Cole (R-Ok) and adds that ‘it’s not going to pass and Obama KNOWS it. But that’s the Obama way of doing things and unfortunately he basically get’s away with anything he does or doesn’t do.

Cole want’s lawmakers to come to a deal that would ease the cuts to the military , $10 billion which would come from the Air Force. Unfortunately, that would require a change in the law and chances are slim to none on that ever happening.

Until that happens, however, ‘we’re going to have to live within the numbers that we have under the law, and sadly, that means we’re going to have to make a lot of tough choices’ about cutting billions from the Air Force spending request, he said.

Air Force officials said the force is older and smaller than it has ever been, and after 14 years of continuous warfare is being stretched to the breaking point.

“When we deployed to Operation Desert Storm in 1990, our Air Force had 188 fighter squadrons in the inventory. This budget will take us to 49,” said General Mark Welsh, the Air Force chief of staff. “There were 511,000 active duty airmen during Desert Storm. We have 200,000 fewer today.”

So as it sits we are basically sitting ducks with our military forces being drastically cut by Obama in a time when the world is a very, very dangerous place…

God Bless.
