    As with healthcare in the US, in addition to grossly lining a number of pockets military spending also employs a significant number of people so any proposed changes can be disparaged as endangering jobs.

    I believe there was an article showing Lockheed's component assembly for the F-35 takes place in over 1/3 of the districts of national representatives, making their support a matter of propping up the local economies.

    I believe the figure (for the US at least) is in the trillions easily
