What Could You Get For $845 Billion?
NRCC | February 5, 2013

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) said today that our budget deficit for 2013 is projected to be $845 billion.

That means Barack Obama’s government, despite all the money it takes in from taxpayers, will spend $845 billion more than it takes in this year.

This is yet another example of President Obama’s abject failure to rein in spending.

However, it did get us thinking…what exactly could you get with $845 billion?

Here are a few of our ideas. Feel free to suggest your own!
