What Would You Do with a Billion Dollars?

One of the most egregious features of ObamaCare are its so-called risk corridors, a fancy name for a large scale bailout of big insurance companies expected to cost taxpayers at least $1 billion.

When dealing with government spending figures, it’s sometimes easy to lose perspective. For example, here is what a billion dollars actually looks like:

One Billion Dollars

That’s a lot of dough! But even that is not enough to show what a billion dollars actually gets you.

For example, with a billion dollars you could:

Buy a major league sports team, like the Chicago Cubs.

Chicago Cubs

Build an awesome skyscraper.


Buy your very own private island.


Buy a fleet of 2,000 Rolls Royce Phantoms.

Rolls Royce

Treat every man, woman and child in America to a tasty cheeseburger.


Buy the publishing rights to the entire Beatles catalogue.

Beatles 45

Build a private spaceship, or two. You know you’ve always wanted to.

Spaceship! Whoosh!

Buy an entire country.


Buy the largest rough gem diamond ever found. Ain’t she a beauty?


Or, if you’re like Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi, you could always bail out private insurance companies as part of your government health care takeover.
