The United States’ newest bomber program, the B-21, will cost $97 billion, with a history of cost overruns. Meanwhile, experts warn that the U.S. needs a comprehensive testing program to combat COVID-19 and safely reopen our economy. A fraction of the B=21 budget could help fulfill the urgent need for testing. $550 million, the cost of one B-21 bomber can pay for over 10,000,000 COVID-19 Tests.
