Obama's administration gave Egypt $450 million in emergency aid in 2012 and the country averages about two billion in U.S. foreign aid money each year.
Earlier this year the Obama administration rattled the nerves of Israeli leaders when he agreed to supply Egypt with dozens of F-16 cutting-edge fighter jets at a cost of approximately $213 million to U.S. taxpayers.

Liberal workers who are hit because Obama chooses Egypt over them will never complain.
FR short sheeting the full pages again.
A drop in the bucket to catsup boy.
He just gifted what could have been used to pay almost 4,000 fireman or teachers or LEOS.
Becuase he knows there is plenty of money.
The GOP should be a ridiculing this every minute of the day tomorrow, but hey won’t. Because the people running the GOP today are imbeciles. Hopefully FOX runs with this.
WTF? I hate these people!!!!
That will come in handy for purchasing MANPADs from China.
John Kerry didn’t “gift” any thing to Egypt,
you and I and every American who has had to
tighten our belts did and I for one am damn
tired of it.
Cut foreign aid NOW.
Let the world see how they like that.
$60 million for Syria the other day, another $250 Million today...
Title makes it sound John F’n Kerry gave the money...
Oh’ wait he is a liberal...so they only know how to give taxpayer moneys
To go along with $250,000 for Afghan You Tube channel!
Did he throw them a surprise party also? /sarcasm
Thank you, U.S. taxpayers!
Death to America, Oahu snackbar!!!
Title Correction in order??
“US Spends $250 Million of Taxpayers Money after the Sequester to Aid Egypt”
"If the tax be not proposed for the common defence, or general welfare, but for other objects, wholly extraneous, (as for instance, for propagating Mahometanism among the Turks, or giving aids and subsidies to a foreign nation, to build palaces for its kings, or erect monuments to its heroes,) it would be wholly indefensible upon constitutional principles (emphases added)." --Justice Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution 2 (1833).
AND, remember this come election day (if we have one) to replace everyone who had served more than 2 terms...These were not meant to be career positions! Originally, congress was is session for a very short time, pay was LOW to encourage them to get the business of government done and return to their real lives in order to provide for their families.
We are the lazy ones - instead of being active, we've been going along to get along and look what we've got now!!
Get active! Take back control of Congress!
Thank you for the title correction!
Slightly off topic, but why couldn’t the author use the verb, “give” instead of the noun, “gift?”
While I am aware of certain tax situations where gift is used as a verb, when did it enter the lexicon of contemporary language?
It works today ...
