Science fiction. It looks like it should be in space, not on the sea. How much did it cost?

The U.S. Navy's DDG-1000 Zumwalt-class destroyers are extraordinarily expensive. Since 2009, the cost of the ships has increased 34.4 percent, according to the Congressional Research Service. Each of the three Zumwalt's being built will cost taxpayers around $3.4 billion.Jan 28, 2015.

I think most of the cost is in the new Rail gun and the Tower then had to make it lighter. They are only going to make 2 for right now. I think Obama canceled that program against the advice of his staff.

That's obscene. You could fix world poverty for that money. And probably give every second student a free university education.

They say 300 billion could fix poverty and your point is well taken, now if we can get the rest of the tyrants to go the same route and we would be good to go. I think education in the US is over charged.

My nephew is going to school down here to be a Child Psychologist and he is going to one of the best Collages down here on a coffee farmers salary and spends less then half the time in school they do in the US and the quality of people they put out is equal to other countries students.
