6 Things That Couldve Been Bought With The $1.5 Trillion The Government Spent Developing The F-35 Fighter Jet

Riddled with design flaws and entirely unsuitable for fighting, the massively expensive F-3 5 fighter plane is merely the latest staggering 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-3 5 cost to develop.

1. 1.7 billion M27 tactical assault rifles

While the government is dead set on continuing to fund the F-3 5, our nuclear stockpile is falling into disrepair. At a refurbishment costs of just $20 million per bomb, we could’ve applied the $1.5 trillion to revitalize our crumbling nuclear weapons program and set America back on top.

3. 241,935 M1 Abrams battle tanks

We would never want for tanks again.

4. 943,396 Tomahawk land attack missiles


There are humanitarian crises in dozens of countries all over the world, and while we could be launching prolonged rocket campaigns against all the oppressive regimes that cause them, the government would prefer to funnel all our fund into a useless plane.

5. 10,000 F-2 2 Raptor fighter jets


Having 10,000 F-2 2s would satisfy our country’s aerial fighting be required for decades to come, but Congress would much rather waste our taxation dollars on fancy-pants killing machines that don’t even work.

6. A cell at Guantanamo Bay for every homeless person in America


While housing someone at Gitmo isn’t cheap–approximately $2.8 million per person, per year–the money invest developing the F-3 5 could’ve easily put a roof over the heads of the more than 500,000 Americans currently living on the streets. But why eradicate homelessness when you could have a dysfunctional airplane instead?
