Where does Obama plan to get $7 billion?

info@islandpacket.comJuly 2, 2013 

During his trip to South Africa, President Barack Obama pledged an "initial $7 billion investment from the United States over the next five years" for electricity in Africa.

Maybe he fails to remember that we are already almost $17 trillion in debt.

Where will he get this $7 billion?
