I have not read of a single dollar reduction in foreign aid as a result of sequestering. All items cut were for the express purpose of hurting the American taxpayer/working people the most!


Both Democrats and Republicans Say, "We're broke" and can't help our own.

(Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless, Etc.). I say reevaluate our spending behavior and we won’t be broke!


Over the last several years they have provided direct cash aid to:

Hamas - $351 M,
Libya $1.45 B,
Egypt - $397 M,
Mexico - $622 M,
Russia - $380 M,
Haiti - $1.4 B,
Jordan - $463 M,
Kenya - $816 M,
Sudan - $870 M,
Nigeria - $456 M,
Uganda - $451 M,
Congo - $359 M,
Ethiopia - $981 M,
Pakistan - $2 B,
South Africa - $566 M,
Senegal - $698 M,
Mozambique - $404 M,
Zambia - $331 M,
Kazakhstan - $304 M,
Iraq - $1.08 B,
Tanzania - $554 M,
..with literally Billions of Dollars and they still hate us!!!!

On the other hand,
Our retired seniors, living on a 'fixed income,' Receive NO aid! Nor do they get any breaks, while our government and religious organizations will pour Hundreds of Billions Of $$$$$$'s and Tons of Food to Foreign Countries! Someone needs to explain to them that Charity begins AT HOME!!!

Another atrocity:
We have Hundreds of adoptable American Children who are shoved aside to make room for the adoption of Foreign orphans.

AMERICA, a country where we have countless homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going hungry and without needed medication, the mentally ill without treatment, etc.

YET, they will have a 'Benefit' show For the people of Haiti , on 12 TV Stations,ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies. etc. Just Imagine if Our own “GOVERNMENT” gave 'US' the same support they give to foreign countries.

Sad, isn't it? Yet we keep electing the same type of do nothing “politicians” to represent us and send them to Washington to keep doing the same thing. I say again “Ignorance and apathy are killing our country”.

It's a catch 22. It is not totally unlike what our country did/does to Native Americans.

The Indians, like other countries, tolerate us because of the support we provide. We provide that support so that they will tolerate us. Any good humanitarian affect we get is secondary to the main purpose of the aid; that being so that they will tolerate us.

Same thing about the way they are always talking about social security going broke and they won't be able to pay the people who paid into it, but they never talk about welfare running out of money

And they never talk about cutting Social Security to those who never paid into it.

And if the economy is so good, as described by our fearless leader last night, why do we have to extend unemployment, raise minimum wage, and increase taxes?

Well, if he rules by fiat or executive order from here on out, he will have no one to blame but himself.

We need to stop sending money out of the country, and giving those that don't want to work free everything. How many of us on this site have 250 free minutes per month with texting and all the rest/ All you need do is have a Link Card and the phone is free. We need to stop being big brother to the rest of the world and start drug testing the people here at home that we give everything to.
