Stanley P. Miller is discussing:

The U.S. Air Force’s chief of staff wants the service to develop an affordable, lightweight fighter to replace hundreds of aging F-16s and complement a small fleet of sophisticated F-35 stealth fighters. But an affordable, lightweight fighter is exactly what the F-35 was first conceived to be.

Too expensive to buy, too expensive to fly, the F-35 is a typical defense boondoggle.

Not saying it doesn't have a lot of neat tech built in, just that it isn't practical.
