Republican feel remorse
In a press conference this morning, Republican members of the House Armed Services Committee railed against the sequestration cuts, calling them "catastrophic" for military readiness and a disservice to men and women in active duty and at the Defense Department.
U.S. gives billions of dollars in foreign aid to world's richest countries - then asks to borrow it back

The U.S. is providing hundreds of millions of dollars of foreign aid to some of the world's richest countries - while at the same time borrowing billions back, according to report seen by Congress.

The Congressional Research Service released the report last month which shows that in 2010 the U.S. handed out a total of $1.4bn to 16 foreign countries that held at least $10bn in Treasury securities.

Four countries in the world's top 10 richest received foreign aid last year with China receiving $27.2m, India $126.6m, Brazil $25m, and Russia $71.5m.

Mexico also received $316.7m and Egypt $255.7m.

And yet despite the massive outgoings in foreign aid, the receiving countries hold trillions of dollars in U.S. Treasury bonds.

China is the largest holder with $1.1trillion as of March, according to the Treasury Department.

Brazil held $193.5bn, Russia $127.8bn, India $39.8bn, Mexico $28.1bn and Egypt had $15.3bn.

Foreign aid is earmarked for causes including HIV/AIDs prevention, combating weapons of mass destruction, fighting tuberculosis, and counter-terrorism efforts.

The news has caused grave concern, with Senator Tom Coburn, R-Okla, who requested the report seen by Fox News, calling the policy 'dangerous'.


In a written statement Senator Coburn said:'Borrowing money from countries who receive our aid is dangerous for both the donor and recipient.

'If countries can afford to buy our debt, perhaps they can afford to fund assistance programs on their own.

'At the same time, when we borrow from countries we are supposedly helping to develop, we put off hard budget choices here at home.

You're forgetting, the far right extremists think programs like head start and meals for kids that can't get them anywhere else are communism.

Posit's just plain weird and they're all in denial.
AL's runnin' around in her tinfoil hat spouting scripture, Posit spends all day repeating his favorite mantra "the president failed, the president failed...I was here first...the president failed" like some derranged parrot.
Dissident can't post an article without twisitng what it says and complaining about censorship everytime someone proves him wrong.
Quirk...well...he's Quirk.
And they all think they're making some kind of point other than how desperate the far right has become.
Sometimes it funny, sometimes it's sad, sometimes it's nothing short of stupid, but it is never about what's true or what's best for this country.
It's always about them, their fear, their prejudice, their frutration and their ignorance.
Amen and bump it up!

I'm sure you're not. I think most of us feel we are in decline, and I think that's a valid concept. This issue is not that we are, but rather what can we do about it. For one, we need to expect more of those who have benefited most from unfair tax codes, and we need to urge Congress to pass the President's jobs bill that stops rewarding outsourcing and starts rewarding companies who move back onshore.

If nothing changes, money will continue being upstreamed and the gulf will widen. Why do you think we support what Obama as SAID he wants to do this term? I'd like him to get this done. On the other hand, he is smart enough that he has said he'll leave it to Congress to come up with a solution to Immigration Reform. That is still a work in progress with the "no pathway to citizenship" crowd picking up momentum. Just so you know, I finally did get my proposal to NumbersUSA by invitation after I contacted them, because I know they are in contact with lots of Republicans in office. This is the one issue where I am in opposition to what the President has recommended, and I've never waivered on that. Something will be done. Some legislation will be passed. I genuinely hope that it will end the impasse and STOP further illegal immigration. If we don't, things will only get worse for American workers.

Most of foreign aid goes to support militaristic US Dictators (US puppets ) at helm of a nation, people rarely see a Nickel.

They aren't smart enough!!!!! LMAO
