"The amount of money is huge.

It is 87 times what the federal government spends annually on after-school programs.

It is 7 times what President Bush proposed to spend on education for low-income schools in 2004.

It is 9 times what the federal government spends on special education each year.

It is 8 times what the government spends to help middle and low-income students go to college.

It is 15 times what the government spends on cancer research.

It is 27 times what the government spends on substance abuse and mental health treatment.

It is 58 times what the government spends on community health centers."
