Boeing workers have something to celebrate. Today Congressman Todd Akin (R-MO) announced that the Department of Defense approved the construction of 150 F/A-18 Super Hornets.   This multi-year deal ensures that the Navy will get a deep discount on the planes.  It is estimated that they government should save close to a half a billion dollars because of this contract.

Congressman Akin says this announcement has a direct impact on 26,000 people lives.  Akin spent the last two years pushing for this contract between Boeing and the Navy.
