What can $119 billion buy you?

What can $119 billion dollars buy the United States? a lot, considering...

  • just $500 million would add 70,000 kids to Headstart
  • a measly $1 billion would allow 160,000 more low-income renters to receive federal rent assistance
  • it cost $6.4 billion to run the National School Lunch Program in 2001
  • Bush's FY 2024 Education budget request is about $53 billion
  • Or...for the country that has everything, $119 billion will buy you a war in Iraq! $119 billion and counting, I should qualify...
