Nothing in our founding documents indicates that “The king shall tax its citizens and send their treasure to foreign kings” so the amount we spend on feed our own does not hold a candle to the foreign aid and feeding and paying or others in foreign lands.
Yep. The yearly cost for the food stamp program is less than 10% of the deficit. The whole program could be shut down, but that wouldn’t save the government from default. The total cost of pork from federal government to state and local governments, though, is sky high (regulator/overseer costs, public education, other so-called “family” programs, etc.).
