OK, _if_ we assume that $43 billion of taxpayer's money is to be spent 
(which is not true), then dividing that figure by the population yields 
approximately $2,000 per head. That is to be spent over eight years: 
$250 per year. Which is about $5 per week or 70 cents per day.

Coupled with the fact that, as a nation, we have income rather than a 
static fortune, does that bring the matter into perspective?
