    Army Says No to More 70-ton Abrams Tanks, But Congress Insists

    Army Says No to More Tanks, But Congress Insists

    Associated Press| by Richard Lardner

    WASHINGTON - Built to dominate the enemy in combat, the Army's hulking Abrams tank is proving equally hard to beat in a budget battle.

    Lawmakers from both parties have devoted nearly half a billion dollars in taxpayer money over the past two years to build improved versions of the 70-ton Abrams.

    But senior Army officials have said repeatedly, "No thanks."

    Washington scaled back the Department of Defenseís budget, but insists that the DoD spend an extra $436 million on tanks they donít want!

    SHARE if you think funding tanks no one wants is a waste of YOUR tax dollars! http://fxn.ws/11xwRuS
