What needs modernization is the ICBM. The Minuteman III missile entered service in 1970. The USAF wants to keep it in service until 2030. That is absolutely insane.

Obama will say this is to much money and shut down most of these nukes. He has flexibility now.

 He has get to by the House Armed Services Committee first and the Senate. The Congress controls the purse strings.

Well, since it appears that this level of spending is part of the Obama (mal)administration's own plans, the chances of that happening aren't great.

I agree. The Congress sets the budgets. This House Armed Services Committee is willing to give the military anything they want. Its not like the old days when the Democrats held the majority of seats in HASC and basically having the military to beg for every dollar.
