That’s A Lot of Money

The Congress has just voted to spend another $50 billion ($50,000,000,000) on the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. That brings the total to $350 billion ($350,000,000,000).

That total spending is enough to fund the Miami-Dade County Public Schools — the fourth-largest school district in the country with over 356,000 students — at their current budget for the next 58.3 years.
