No

 @9F83YRN from Illinois disagreed…9mos9MO

The F-35 is the most advanced stealth fighter apart from the F-22 and must stay in production to maintain a technological edge against our enemies

 @ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...8yrs8Y

Yes

 @9FN9KM8 from Washington disagreed…9mos9MO

IF we don't have superiority in th military then others would, and we would be forced out as a world leader.

 @7PTCG38Democrat from Wisconsin answered…1yr1Y

No, the program is too far into production and service to cancel, but revise procurement procedures to avoid out of control and mismanaged costs with future military weapons programs

 @9CD7JJ3 from Virginia answered…1yr1Y

Yes but first fund development of a better replacement aircraft and only discontinue when the new planes are ready.

 @98PM9LCAmerican Solidarity from Kansas answered…1yr1Y

Yes, but continue to operate and provide upgrades for the existing F35 fleet.

 @97NWKHH from Oregon answered…2yrs2Y

No, the F-35 is the current pinnacle of stealth fighter technology. They are important to the national defense.

 @9L4Z23BIndependent  from Pennsylvania answered…2mos2MO

No, but all government contracts currently active and all future contracts should be reviewed all ensure there is no price gouging or no cost overruns

 @8XLR4JXDemocrat  from North Carolina answered…9mos9MO

No, but we should investigate different methods of reducing production costs

 @8RVZLCW from Virginia answered…3yrs3Y

 @9CNWR6W from Tennessee answered…12mos12MO

No, but we should be more discerning about how much we pay defense contractors

 @9C9SCF3 from Texas answered…1yr1Y

No, decrease defense spending in general but complete the F-35 program so as to not waste what has already been invested.

 @7PTCG38Democrat from Wisconsin answered…1yr1Y

No, this weapons program is too far into production and service, but revise procurement procedures for future military weapons programs so that costs do not become so mismanaged and out of control

 @8WLN633 from Pennsylvania answered…3yrs3Y

 @8LT3BN2 from Rhode Island answered…4yrs4Y

 @8HBMN76 from California answered…4yrs4Y

We should reduce production of the F-35 fighter, but not cancel it, in case of losing global influence.

 @9FNPCYQ from Illinois answered…9mos9MO

yes, assuming the money saved is used on something to better U.S citizen's lives

 @9432S4FSocialist from Virginia answered…2yrs2Y

No, they are in too deep; however, more oversight should be placed on the project to ensure its completion in a quicker and more cost effective manner

 @942VB6C from California answered…2yrs2Y

Me like F35 and a10, both, both planes go "BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRT"

 @8RHL36C from Illinois answered…3yrs3Y

Yes, why do we need it? we're already in a multi-trillion dollar deficit and we aren't in wartime.

 @8KG49V2Socialist from Michigan answered…4yrs4Y

Yes, they should put that money towards social and environmental causes instead

 @9P7Y5X7from Guam answered…1wk1W

No, but it should implement programs and policies to gain back the funds spent on manufacturing the jets

 @8XLR4JXDemocrat  from North Carolina answered…1wk1W

No, since cancellation would cost more than finishing it at this point, but we should investigate different methods of reducing production costs in the future

 @9NP88GS from Pennsylvania answered…2wks2W

No, get the cost down or find a bid for lower, it's ridiculous, regardless war is war. Showing up with an expensive gun isn't going to do what they make it seem. Its more the government funding rich people funneling money through the military defense fund.

 @9NLZLPXDemocrat from North Carolina answered…2wks2W

No, since cancelling would cost more than finishing at this point, but we should find ways to cut production costs in the future

 @9NG47V6 from California answered…3wks3W

If tensions begin to rise heavily with the following countries: Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, or Saudi Arabia, then yes, just to be safe. If not, no.

 @9NF9B4MRepublican from Iowa answered…3wks3W

Yes, but a less expensive alternative should be adopted. The US should maintain technological superiority and numerical parity in fighter aircraft with other nations, but bankrupting ourselves undermines our military strength.
