“The current shipbuilding plan for the 313-ship fleet is pure fantasy,” said Rep. Gene Taylor, D-Miss., chairman of the House Armed Services subcommittee on seapower. “It is totally unaffordable with the resources the Department of Defense allocates to the Navy for ship construction.”
Rep. Duncan Hunter of California, ranking Republican on the full Armed Services Committee, was even blunter.
“The shipbuilding program is in shambles,” he said.
That’s a bipartisan “ouch.”
