$11 billion can go a long way.  It can buy:

My point being that $11 billion is a ridiculous amount of money that could do a crazy amount of good.  $11 billion is also the amount the Federal Election Commission is projecting will be spent on the 2012 election.  That seems like such a waste to me.  This is especially true knowing that a large part of that money is coming from people wanting to buy influence for their own self-interest.  What a misuse of resources!
