Senate looks to freeze F-35 production rate

Apparently Congress hasn't received word of what China is up to

Of course we kid. 

Seriously though, the on-again, off-again nature of the F-35 program and just how many jets we're going to produce has hit another roadblock of sorts.

The latest word out of D.C. is that Congress is looking to freeze the production rate, unwilling to build more jets that could potentially require high-priced fixes in the future.

Why not work the bugs out first? Makes sense right?
