WASHINGTON - The Obama administration is close to a deal with Egypt's new government for $1 billion in debt relief, a senior U.S. official said on Monday....

If we have checks, we have money!
only 1200+ days now without a budget.
This is absurd.
Its only right now that we are the largest muslim nation. Used to the wealthiest too!
This is spending, where the eff is Congress?
I’m sick and tired of funding Islamists.
These people hate us and all that we stand for.
WHY are we going to give them money?
Because, they certainly won’t stop hating us.
What exactly does $1B to Egypt buy us? Is the policy to shovel buckets of taxpayer cash down the toilet or do we get something, ANYTHING, in return?
How about we take the $1B could do some good on our shores - such as refunding it back to tax payers
Whose debt? Ours or theirs?
Did Obama check with the Chinese first? After all they lend us most of the money for Obama’s trillion dollar federal yearly deficit. Is it OK if we send a billion of the loan to Egypt? Never forget Obama is a vapid liberal. The motto of all liberals is “With my guilt and your gelt, we can do anything.”
This is nothing more than Obama fiat to support his north Afican caliphate... all with one goal. The elimination by proxy of the only democracy in the Mideast, Israel.
All done for his brethren at Americas expense. I’ll bet they are all having a hearty laugh at the stupidity of the once Christian nation.
I can assure you that whatever happens to Israel happens to western man.
Treasonous bass turd.
Why doesn’t Congress have a say in this?
Do not give these murdering bastards another dime..
Christians in Egypt and Nigeria continue to suffer at the hands of Islamists. In Egypt, Muslim mobs are rampaging through Coptic villages, while, in Nigeria, the radical Islamist terror group, Boko Haram, continues to blow up churches and slaughter Christians in their homes.
While the looting, bombing, burning, and killing continues to terrify millions of Christians in Egypt and Nigeria, the bloodshed has attracted little attention around the world. In Washington, D.C., both the Obama Administration and the State Department continue to blame the violence on poverty and social inequality rather than condemn Islamic supremacy for persecuting Christian minorities.
Good question: You’d think that since Congress has to appropriate funds for foreign assistance that they’d have a say if the executive decides to forgive money owed to the US Treasury.
But we’ve seen plenty of evidence that this president is not overly concerned with abiding by the Constitution.
Send it to them in the form of missiles. As in “INCOMING”!
Egypt had better demand it be in cash. Our check will bounce.
He keeps putting us deeper in debt while helping the muslims get out of debt. Borrow from Peter (chinese) to pay Paul (muslims).
Yep, if the check register says there’s a balance, write another check. Where have I heard that before? Well, one group I’ve heard say it is 10 year old kids. And there’s another group I’ve heard say it, too.
What are the odds they were all Pro-Western and secular?
The dude is a common criminal. America created laws and procedure for a reason.
No kidding....Today ONLY (not to mention the other million countries we support) we are going to give Israel and now Egypt a bunch of financial aid that we don’t have to give. Ridiculous. Why can’t these dang people understand that we don’t have money to give to these other countries until we fix ourselves here first. It is so frustrating.
Is this more Bernenke “funny money”? Roll the presses......
Islamists with billions in financing and the best US weapons in the region...
What could possibly go wrong?
Whatever it takes to kill the Copts, enslave and abuse women, and rid the land of pagan artifacts.... Ooops, I forgot about Egypt’s Islamic obligation to wipe the Jews from the face of the earth. The way Obama sees it, a billion dollars is a bargain.
Maybe he can pay for it by cancelling a few of Michelle’s vacations. Except they’ll be out of the White House soon, and we’ll be stuck with the bill - again. November can’t come soon enough.
Do we get the pyramids? Imagine how many driveways those piles could create, and jobs.
