$2.8 TRILLION?? What the hell... That is enough money to get astronauts to Mars and back at least 4 times... Or to pay for universal Healthcare for US citizens for at least 3 years. Or to conquer a country in like Africa. Or to find a cure for cancer and hundreds of diseases with stem cell research over several years with that amount of money. Or to significantly advance nuclear fusion reactor research. Or to place a solar power system on almost every building in the USA.
What the hell is this nonsense by the military industrial complex?
