Posted on 02/15/2014 8:17:44 AM PST by BenLurkin
Seeking crucial help for a key Middle Eastern ally, President Barack Obama announced late Friday that he will ask Congress to approve a new round of financial aid for Jordan, which is struggling to manage the influx of hundreds of thousands of refugees from the civil war in Syria.
The U.S. Agency for International Development has estimated that it will cost the government of King Abdullah II about $900 million to host the refugees this year alone.

So what’s the offset? Borrow more from China?
We have no business giving out loans when we cannot pay our own bills! Talk about deadbeats.
I thougth Mike Jordan had plenty of money from underwear endorsements. ;>}
Not this guy either, huh?
We have idiots for leaders.
This is not our problem.
Stay out of it.
We are far past being broke and have no money to lend.
While Jordan is probably the best non Israeli ally we have in the mideast, we’re broke.
Only on one condition. They let the palistinians back in and leave Israel dropping all ambitions of a palestinian state.
Why the heck doesn’t the sleazebags down at the UN pick up the tab for this BS. We need to pay for all the “refuge” coming into this country! Period!
He’ll want to borrow it from China to loan it to Jordan.
Then he will “forgive” the loan by executive order.
So he’s a freakin’ king...I bet he has a few properties he can sell in Jordan to make up for the $900 million. Oh no...the morons in congress want the US taxpayer to pay his bills. He’s a king, after all. We wouldn’t want him to spend HIS money on stuff in HIS country. Further proof that congress and the Clown Prince are in cahoots to loot further money from the taxpayer. Criminals all.
If congress says no he’ll find a way to authorize it regardless. The words, “The people have spoken”, will never cross his mind nor lips.
Obama has a pen, let him write the check.
Wait, I thought he didn’t need Congress. All he has to do is to use his phone call the Treasury or use his pen to write them a check.
Jordan is a resource poor Arab country
Is the “royal” family poor? Couldn’t they sell some of their property to Israel?
There's what? 6 million Jordanians. A couple of hundred thousands refugees are overwhelming the country. They don't have money from oil.
Israel does not want any more property. They have enough to handle as it is right now.
We were in Jordan for a few days a month ago. Amman is a bustling, cosmopolitan city. There appears to be some saleable real estate. The royal family is rich. The bums want the US taxpayers to take care of their problems. No thanks. They are taking advantage of LID-idiot desires to help everyone.
excuse me... LIB-idiot
