I know where we can find that $1.6 billion with room to spare!
"The $65 billion gain is nonetheless real – rest assured of that. But only
$36 billion came from Berkshire’s operations. The remaining $29 billion
was delivered to us in December when Congress rewrote the U.S. Tax
Code." I found the $1.6 billion with room to spare!

Don't blame Obama! What’s in Veterans Affairs’ $164 Billion Budget?
"Wrangling over an issue -- veterans -- that often receives bipartisan support, the legislation died on a vote of 56-41, with only two Republicans voting for it.
