Obama's 20-page economic plan: The math still does not add up

While on the campaign trail, the President continued to tout his 20-page booklet that outlines his economic plan for the next four years. Erin Burnett reported on Tuesday that the plan didn't exactly add up.

According to his pamphlet, "President Obama's plan reduces the deficit by more than $4 trillion over the next decade." But how is he going to do it? That's the $4 trillion dollar question.

Fastest highway in America is open for business: Texas opens highway with 85 mph speed limit

The fastest highway in America is now open. On Wednesday, workers in Texas removed barricades from a new toll road, officially linking it to State Highway 130.

The new stretch of road completes the reach from Austin to San Antonio and has a legal speed limit of 85 miles per hour.  It is the highest posted speed limit on any highway in the country.

The private company that built the road at its own expense will operate and maintain it over the next 50 years in exchange for most of the toll money.

Which brings us to tonight's number: $6.17.

That's how much it will cost drivers to take the road.
