Paul indicated that all foreign aid should be eliminated.
Paul indidicated that aid to Israel should be cut only after aid was eliminated from other nations, particularly Israel's enemies in the region.
And he acknowledges that Bibi also would like to see military aid to Israel reduced and eventually eliminated. Of course supplying Egypt with F16s and Abrams tanks makes that more difficult.
If financial aid to Israel were slowly decreased over time, it would increase the Jewish states sovereignty because they wouldnt need to get permission from the U.S. every time they need to defend themselves against aggressive neighbors, Sen. Rand Paul said on Monday.
Paul said that while he knows the idea of decreasing any kind of foreign aid is a minority opinion in Washington, it will be a lot harder for America to help others if we are out of money, reported Fox News.
I agree with the whole concept of cutting aid. It’s down to $3bil a year, and that’s $3bil too many imho. One less lever to use on us.
