With huge design flaws, the enormously expensive F-35 fighter jet is completely unsuitable for combat. Uncle Sam’s expenditure on this jet is just the latest astonishing example of out-of-control government spending. Here are some other things that could’ve been purchased with the $1.5 trillion that the F-35 cost to develop.
1. 1.7 billion M27 tactical assault rifles
1.7 billion rifles would mean each man, woman and child in the country would receive five of this firearm! It really puts things into perspective right? But no. The government had to buy one stupid jet.
2. Refurbishing 75,000 B61 nuclear bombs
While the US Government is hell bent on continuing to fund the F-35, the country’s nuclear bombs are slowly dwindling and falling into disrepair. At a refurbishment cost of just $20 million per bomb, the $1.5 trillion bumper money could have been used to resuscitate their crumbling nuclear weapons program and put the country back on top!
3. 241,935 M1 Abrams battle tanks
Who doesn’t like a macho looking tank? They would never face a shortage again!
