Hillary want MORE aid to Egypt. Unbelievable.
I remember Romney mentioning that he would stop all UN aid to all countries and start form scratch if he were elected. This was a while back. How come he doesn’t mention this anymore?
For the same reason that he added "health" as an exception for abortion (meaning any reason).
I’m not going to say that Romney didn’t say this. But the only person during the debates that I heard making such a statement was Rick Perry.
Starting at zero, of course, doesn't mean it'll stay at zero. It's just in keeping with the principle of zero-based budgeting, not this baseline insanity we've been stuck with since the 1970s.
Thanks! I couldn’t remember which debate it was.
Since Romney wasn’t on my radar at the time..I didn’t really pay too much attention to what he said, lol. Dang, maybe I should have. :)
"Under President Romney, the U.S. foreign aid budget would shrink. He has said, I will stop sending money to any country that can take care of itself. And no foreign aid will go to countries that oppose American interests.
I also found a bunch of quotes here. I wish he would do it. Just cut it all off immediately and reevaluate.
