$210 million? How niggardly. Why not $2 billion from Imam Obama. It's only little piles of devaluing paper.

It boggles the mind that we are sending money to people whose sole purpose in life is to destroy our civilization.

I wish the House had the guts to put a HUGE mouse trap like contraption in our cookie jar to break these Socialist’s fingers as they reach in to dole out more, and more of the money we are borrowing from foreign lands for them to be so generous with.

If it’s any consolation, “we” aren’t sending jack. It’s the criminals who have hijacked the government that doing the “giving”.

When the Federal apparatus in DC extorts 3 trillion bucks from the productive class, and spends 4 trillion, this is small potatoes.

It’s kind of like paying protection money to the ragheads in exchange for not attacking the US too much.

Anybody that thinks the House handles the purse strings is nuts.
Obama and his cronies have it to give away any time they like, they don’t need to ask anyone.

Where does this 13 million come from?
Obama just says it and it is done, the hell with the House.

Cutting foreign aid seems to be a taboo topic in the media and congress....false argument usually from both sides, increase our taxes or cut citizen entitlements,...

I could think of a whole crapload of other things that could be cut too without upseting things too much politically but that would require assuming they actually intend to cut anything.

Good point, but we don’t know do we. Wondering if somebody could ask one of the few still on our side like maybe Jim DeMint while he is still there just how that money is getting into play without the House. Maybe Tom McClintock would know.

The fact is Obama hands money over to this one and that one, and spends like a drunken Rotney King, and the HOUSE never says no, or they really don’t control the funds ——one or the other.

How about all the black ops money we are spending? How about all the open budget military we are spending? How much money are we giving to Turkey to put Patriots on the border?

How much was the CIA spending to buy up arms in Libya and ship them to the terrorists?

I’m betting we’re talking at least 50 billion when it’s all said and done.

We are funding an Obama/clinton/globalist me agenda they refuse to clarify, seems to not be in our best interest or make us more secure (imo)

Did anybody really think we would force Syria to buy their own chemical weapons to slaughter their own people??

The money will go to arms dealers who will distribute one AK-47 to any child over the age of 15 who can say "Allahu Akbar" and then they will take them to the party at the American Embassy and kill the Ambassador.

See that? We’re not broke after all. Hell, total up ALL of the foreign aid we dole out, and it’s clear that we are in the money. Happy days are here again!
