HOW much?

From a BBC quiz on current events over the past week (probably not permanently archived, but here's the URL, just in case):

George W Bush has outlined several big ticket policies this election year. Which carries the highest price tag? A: Moon and Mars exploration B: Promoting marriage C: Fingerprinting and photographing visitors to the US The answer was C The database will cost $300m this year and $20bn to implement fully over several years. The president has pledged $1.5bn to encourage citizens to marry, especially those in inner city areas. The space programme will receive an extra $1bn over five years to set up a base on the Moon and manned flights to Mars.
I answered totally wrongly, thinking the cheapest (and only worthwhile one) was the most expensive.
