Here is the article, well worth reading the details of each way: http://articles.moneycentral.msn.com/Investing/Forbes/7BetterUsesfor700Billion.aspx?GT1=33002 Improve bridges, railway (so we can actually use them and save money gasp!); create clean electricity, pay for the cost of private health care for everyone in the US, cover the cost to reduce carbon emissions, Upgrade ports, increase national security, increase education budget. Not each of the options listed above would cost $700B. For example, US health care for 3 yeasr + reducing carbon emission for 3 years would cold $700B combined. There seems to be so much more than can - and should - be done with this money. Why is this 700 B just "found" now. With all of the cuts in the budget the government makes, where are they getting 700B??
