XB-70 was built on such a large scale it was never sustainable. It would have been nice to see B-1B get more money to keep them ready, but they bore heavy funding cuts throughout the program.

It would have been sustainable, you'd just have fewer of them. It's max weight was only about 40,000lbs more than a fully loaded B-52 and they built over 700 of those.
