    Boosting shipbuilding to meet the Navy’s 355-ship goal could require an additional $5 billion to $5.5 billion in annual spending in the Navy’s 30-year projection, according to an estimate by naval analyst Ronald O’Rourke at the Congressional Research Service.

    Lawrence J. Korb, a retired naval officer and former assistant defense secretary under Reagan, said the Navy’s request isn’t realistic unless the Trump administration is willing to take the budget “to levels we’ve never seen.”

    Wait…What…huh? Spending 6 billion extra a year out of a 3.7 trillion dollar budget is bank breaking, budget breaking disaster for America……????

    However we have this tidbit…….

    “You never have enough money to buy a perfect defense. You have to make trade-offs,” said Korb, senior fellow at
    the Center for American Progress.

    To wit:

    The Center for American Progress (CAP) is a progressive public policy research and advocacy organization. According to CAP, the center is “dedicated to improving the lives of all Americans, through bold, progressive ideas, as well as strong leadership and concerted action.”[2] The Center presents a liberal[3] viewpoint on economic and social issues. It has its headquarters in Washington, D.C.

    ONE HAS TO LAUGH at how the LEFT doesnt get it at all….They are so anti-military that they are not willing to pull a navy out of the toilet(Currently at 272 ships and forcing extended 9 month sea tours rather then the usual 6 month tours).

    The Marines have actually grounded their pilots for lack of parts and training time…This is on both parties…the tea party demanding a 10 percent cut across the board…meaning a 10 percent cut to the military as well.

    To meet threats around the world and PROVIDE JOBS The navy is the smallest its been since the 1800’s. The Marines cant fly because their planes have no spare parts and no fuel and no budget. The military now admits they cannot fight ONE war let alone a two ocean war which has been their doctrine since the 1940’s.

    The iron law is that in a representative democracy entitlements continually expand and squeeze out all other spending. We are a mere generation behind Europe. Military expenditures, both as a percentage of total budget and likely as an absolute real amount, are likely to fall. A 200 ship Navy is much more likely than a 355 ship Navy. There will be yet further and large decreases in the size, capabilities and readiness of all our services. We will have to abandon most of our treaty commitments or face a major, catastrophic defeat somewhere in the world.

    So, apparently Trump will bring about some sort of fiscal crisis with an extra $5 billion a year for the Navy budget.

    The CBO says Trumpski’s new Navy would cost $25 billion more a year, not $5 billion/yr. A billion here, a billion there, pretty soon you’re talking about real money!

    Trumpski isn’t as smart as his bro Putin, but he’s no dummy either. As Reagan found out, if you boost gov’t spending you boost the economy, adding working class jobs in the process. And as short Dick Cheney famously said, Reagan demonstrated that deficits don’t matter (unless we have a Dem prez). Trumpski’s Navy plan and $1 trillion infrastructure plan are as much about gov’t subsidized jobs as about the outcomes. It’s part of his economic stimulus plan, just under another name, but then the Repubs were always more clever about hiding their intentions.

    To Republicans, there’s nothing wrong with that unless a Democrat proposes it.

    CBO Estimates That Spending for New Ships in the
    Navy’s Plan Would Average $18.4 Billion per Year
    The Navy estimates that buying the new ships specified
    in the 2016 plan would cost $494 billion (in 2015 dol-
    lars) over 30 years—or an average of $16.5 billion per
    year—slightly less than the costs of the 2015 plan. Using
    its own models and assumptions, CBO estimates that the
    cost of new-ship construction in the Navy’s 2016 plan
    would total $552 billion over 30 years, or an average of
    $18.4 billion per year.

    You failed to grasp the point of my post….The NAVY wants a 308 ship navy minimum….Trump is looking even larger….the cost would be 5 billion more for 365 ships vs 308 ships over the next 30 years.
