    The term “Bomber Gap” refers to the fear of Soviet superiority in the area of intercontinental bombers. The concept first arose in July 1957 after the Soviets flew their Bear and Bisonbomberspast American observers multiple times, in turn duping them into exaggerating theSoviet’s bombingcapability. The term was used to scare American citizens into believing the Soviets possessed airborne bomber superiority over the U.S. and, in turn that the U.S. should fund more American bomber jets.

    Answer: B)tgreatly increasing military spending.

    Explanation: When politicians claimed there was a “bomber gap” between the Soviets and the United States, the effect was that Congress began greatly increasing military spending. This was to narrow that gap so the U.S. would not fall behind the USSR. It turns out, though, such a gap never existed.
