9 out of 12 too. For the ones I got wrong I almost chose the correct answer so I should have stuck with my gut instinct. It was fun.

10 of 12. Screwed up the TARP question and honestly thought we spend the most money on national debt interest.

9 of 12 correct…
Not sure why I thought India and Pakistan were “generally” friendly. Neither are at war.
Who really cares about the prime minister of Britain?
I thought social programs – SS, Medicare, Medicaid, etc were the largest killers of the budget. National defense? Go figure.
Inflation at 1%? They’re lying!

I got eleven right, but I do not feel very smart when it comes to figuring out what these clowns in Washington are doing.

Glad to be in the 11 out of 12 club with such great company.
Disappointed I missed the question on Federal expenditures.
Maybe I should run for Congress!

Thomas, India and Pakistan have a “cold war” going on. several years ago, there was a real threat of a nuclear exchange; the threat still exists, but has been tamped down a bit.
Get ahold of “War at the Top Of The World” by Eric Margolis if you are interested in the topic.
