Admittedly, it was insignificant, but, we were sending aid to Saudi Arabia? Really? And it's just being ended, maybe, now?
And who are the 97 who voted to continue aid to Saudi Arabia?
At 72 dollars a barrel they should be sending us aid.

"Admittedly, it was insignificant, but, we were sending aid to Saudi Arabia? Really?"
90% probability, IMHO, the "aid" was "for" Saudi Arabia but "to" an American corp, eg. Wackenhut. A lot of foreign aid is essentially domestic pork.

President George W. Bush considers Saudi Arabia a vital ally in his campaign against terror
Vital ally or not (and I vote "not"), there's no conceivable reason the US should be sending aid money to Saudi Arabia. The money would be better spent investigating the Muslim schools that the Saudis finance in the US.
This is nice but...why in blazes were we giving any aid to Saudi Arabia, one of the richest countries in the world?

That is exactly what I was thinking - What the heck does Saudi Arabia need OUR "aid" for anyway? They can afford anything and everything they may want or need....

I am sure the aid to Saudi Arabia can be traced back to the Clinton years.

Now that the House has got the guts to do this, maybe they can refuse money to the UN and send them packing to a more friendly venue. We sure don't need them living off perks from the USA.
