That's a lot of money, though it should be noted it's spread out over the next 10 years.
And also, it's not actually that much money if you examine what the United States is capable of spending while scarcely batting an eye.
In total, according to the Costs of War project from Brown University, the U.S. has spent over $8 trillion over two decades fighting its post-9/11 wars.
The $75 billion Lockheed took home in 2020 is more than one-and-a-half times the entire State Department budget.
As you may have suspected, we spend a great deal more on our efforts to make war than those to make peace.
All this is to say that the United States has no aversion to spending money.
