    Really!! TWO BILLION DOLLARS over ten years. So that's an additional 200 million a year he wants to spend (on a government laboratory) and we can't have White House tours, no Blue Angels at the Air & Water Show, shut down of several FAA Towers, teacher lay-offs (oh yeah my bad not gonna happen) etc. What happened to the sequester?? I thought the sky was falling.

    How about shutting down Air Force one until 2016. Stop these needless visits.

    The Thunder Birds & Blue Angels are the best recruiting tool that the Navy & Air Force have ,The Big O don't want to build them up. By the way do you know he is a dumb azz.
