  • Enough to pay for:

    1 full year of the federal education budget.. with some leftover (roughly 99 Billion a this year.. it's a little less than 99)


    5 months of war in Iraq & Afganistan (roughly 20 billion per month between the two.. it's a little less than 20)

  • Oh Pixie....I would go with the funds for education and close up shop on the WARS. Right?
    Kind of blows my mind to think of the money wasted on the wars.
