Navy: Lincoln Refueling Delayed, Will Hurt Carrier Readiness

The U.S. Navy will delay the refueling of the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) for an unknown period because of the uncertain fiscal environment due to the ongoing legislative struggle, the service told Congress in a Friday message obtained by USNI News.

Lincoln was scheduled to be moved to Huntington Ingalls Industries’ (HII) Newport News Shipyard later this month to begin the 4-year refueling and complex overhaul (RCOH) of the ship.

“This delay is due to uncertainty in the Fiscal Year 2013 appropriations bill, both in the timing and funding level available for the first full year of the contract,” the message said.
“CVN-72 will remain at Norfolk Naval Base where the ships force personnel will continue to conduct routine maintenance until sufficient funding is received for the initial execution of the RCOH.”

Rep. J. Randy Forbes (R-Va.) chairman of the House Armed Services Seapower subcommittee released a statement denouncing the need for decision.

Forbes called the delay, “another example of how these reckless and irresponsible defense cuts in Washington will have a long-term impact on the Navy’s ability to perform its missions. Not only will the Lincoln be delayed in returning to the Fleet, but this decision will also affect the USS Enterprise (CVN-65) defueling, the USS George Washington (CVN-73) RCOH, and future carrier readiness.”

I am certain they could refuel the fleet if the o'dumblers would pay back what we spent on their vacations.

Seconded Chip....

To make matters worse....we're so broke that the USPS is going to stop delivery on Saturdays to save money :/

They're not broke at all they're spending it on new amphibious landing vehicles and things of that nature. They make sure not to fund old equipment so they can point and say 'look we need more money'.

Exactly Laser :)

Hmm. Maybe Iran could give us some fuel rods?
With all the leeches and illegals lining up for free stuff like medical care, tuition, food, section 8, disability, welfare, birth control and phones no wonder they can't buy the rods.

Right on LaserShadow!   My son was at the Navy base, NAXJAX for many years taking care of the Blue Angel planes.   He always complained about all the gas they waste daily just going up and down the coast for no good reason.  Then they complained if they had to buy a new uniform for one of the mechanics.

So they don't have money for fuel but have enough to blast Dolphins and Whales ?

Maybe they could sell some of DHS's 2 billion hollow point rounds to the public in order to cover the fuel bill! The Navy would then have gas and the hollow points would be in responsible hands!

And yet they send planes, tanks and guns to terror organizations.
Look at fy 2013 defense budget.
