Over a billion dollars

I learned tonight on the news that “outside groups ” spent over a billion dollars on the election. In the neighboring state of Virginia,  for the Senate race, outside groups spent $53 million.

But this country has a deficit. Yet there seems to be oodles of money for political ads.

Wow,  with a billion dollars,  there would be enough money to repair the nation’s infrastructure among other things.
