I have not read of a single dollar reduction in foreign aid as a result of past 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,
But, over the last several years THEY
Have provided direct cash aid to…..
Hamas – $351M, 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!!!!
But 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!!!
AMERICA: A country where we have
Countless Homeless without shelter,
Children going to bed hungry,
Elderly going without needed medication and the Mentally ill without treatment — etc.
Ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies.
Now Just Imagine if Our own *GOVERNMENT*
Gave ‘US’ the same support they give to foreign countries.
Sad, isn’t it?
