The "war on terror" is the only foreign war in our history in which US taxpayers are funding both sides.
A decent start.
I wonder waht Obama will do to get around this.
One way or another I bet he finds a way to get them the money!!!!!!
How about we turn off the avionics in all those F16’s we gave them while we’re at it?
Bet Ron Paul likes it and I would agree with him.
There are some places our money does not need to go. If the leftist
don’t like the military spending, they should love this but they won’t
because it’s their boy’s doin’.
This is just one of several countries that should not be receiving any aid.
So the great plan from DC is to get Pakistan upset, while we also get Russia upset over Syria. Meanwhile, US troops stuck in Afghanistan must be wondering how the heck they are gonna get home. There are only two land routes. One through Russia and one through Pakistan.
I remember Judge Poe coming to visit my 3rd grade class. Later that year, we had a field trip to sit in his courtroom. This one lady kept responding “yes, your majesty.” She wasn’t being sarcastic; she really was that dumb / cracked out. He kept a good demeanor and didn’t lose it with her. That really stood out in my mind.
It’s been pretty cool watching him grow politically. As a judge in the Houston area, he was well know for his unique (but very fitting) punishments. Of course, the libs always tried to claim “cruel and unusual” against him, but it never stuck.
I’d like to think Rep Poe is Houston’s conservative answer/apology for Queen Shiela...haha.
This makes a LOT of sense! The argument is that China will just provide them with funding. To me, that’s what’s going on anyway, except that we’re paying interest on that money when we borrow it from China to give to Pakistan with no hope of ever getting it back. Let’s just eliminate ourselves as the middle man and consider providing additional support to India to balance it out.
Now get our guys out of Afghanistan. They should have been out 8-10 years ago.
Remember when Gov. Perry wanted to cut ALL foreign aid to zero and then talk about it?
I have a question!
What countries pay us aid? Are there any countries that actually send us money or are we the pocketbook for every country?
I can’t find anyone anymore that thinks aiding Pakistan is in our interest. I used to hear, and understand, arguments about how it’ll be easier to get OBL if we kept them placated. Now that OBL is gone, what exactly does Pakistan have that we need?
Thank God. That is a start. We need to make deep cuts. Pissed that they passed the NASCAR funding. Where is that in the Constitution.....yes have a strong military....RIght now we are cutting and don’t need the advertising. Once we are on better ground financially we can start supporting SOME fluff.
....but later settled for the 650 million cut.
Yeah real tough guy this Mr. Poe.
I expect the Senate won’t take this up.
