I thought America was a deficit ridden joke? Just the other day , the Pres said we don't even have the money to vacinate our own kids????
Where did we get $250,000,000 to give to promote the Islamic Brotherhood in Egypt? Huh?
Why is the Islamic Brohood more important to the White House than vacinating American children????
There should be an IG investigation..this is Fraud, Waste and Abuse of U.S. taxpayers money. Not only are the children going to suffer, millions of senior citizens who rely on meals on wheels will suffer and die. Don't forget the 50M that was given to Syria last week either. Something is terribly wrong here.
