first as someone else also pointed out, 990 million dollars isn't alot in gov'nt dollars.

second and more important is the source of this money, its essentially coming from fees from the ftc operating companies that is supposed to be used for ftc related stuff. Congress itself probably wastes alot more of non-earmarketed money on donuts and parking...
