The U.S. Agency for International Development and the State Department are expected to spend $59.3 million on Cuba programs in fiscal years 2013 through 2015.
The Foreign Assistance Dashboard website shows how $13,871,004 was spent in fiscal years 2013 and 2014, which covers Oct. 1, 2012, to Sept. 30, 2014.
Most of the money - 71 percent - went to support Cuban civil society, according to the dashboard.
The dashboard, unveiled in 2012, is a joint project of the Department of State and USAID. The government says it operates under the guidance of National Security staff and shows "where U.S. foreign aid is invested."
Total: $9,777,726
Nine organizations received funding. The top three were the New America Foundation, the Foundation for Human Rights in Cuba, and the Pan American Development Foundation.

Total: $2,146,156

Does anyone has a total figure about how much money the Yankee imperialists have spent trying to bring "democracy" to Cuba since January First, 1959?

My guesstimate is that the amount is somewhere between on quadrillion and one quintillion dollars. Poor, poor USA taxpayers, they must be close to either suicide or bankruptcy!
