It is about time to cut off money to the people who hate us.

Stop penalizing Americans by sending trillion$ to foreign nations and states.

Stop telling the American people, who supply the money to the government, through taxation, they must suffer, so other nations can continue to receive funding.

Stop telling Americans to do without because those in office want to manipulate foreign entities with American funds.

We have the best politicians money can buy. Why is the rest of the world any different?

Obama mentioned foreign aid in his 'debt speech' a couple of weeks ago. It's truly a mastery of implying a lot, but saying nothing.

"Because all this spending is popular with both Republicans and Democrats alike, and because nobody wants to pay higher taxes, politicians are often eager to feed the impression that solving the problem is just a matter of eliminating waste and abuse –that tackling the deficit issue won’t require tough choices. Or they suggest that we can somehow close our entire deficit by eliminating things like foreign aid, even though foreign aid makes up about 1% of our entire budget."

From that, can you tell if his plans affect foreign aid at all?

But on second look, did not Obama 'promise' to review the budget "line by line" to eliminate waste?

But, oh wait. That's what "politicians" do.

Obama decries the politicians as if he's not one of them.

Under no circumstances should the US fund any government that welcomes terrorist groups. The US should also cut funding to Israel.

Why Palestinians and not Pakistanis for aiding and abetting Bin Laden?
