U.S. officials want $4 million more for Cuba-related operations

U.S. officials are seeking an additional $4 million for Cuba-related expenses in Washington, D.C., and Havana under the State Department's proposed budget for fiscal 2012. See details here.
The amount of money for pro-democracy programs remains the same at $20 million. That's a tiny fraction of the overall $3.5 trillion federal budget.
I figure that for every $1 million spent under the 2012 budget, just $5.60 would go to Cuba pro-democracy programs. More on that here.
