WA State Congresswoman Seeks to Halt $100 Billion Boost (from U.S. taxpayers) to Troubled IMF (International Monetary Fund)Submitted by pawnstorm12 on Tue, 05/24/2011 - 01:21
The United States promised $100 BILLION DOLLARS to the IMF in 2009! Why aren't Americans up in arms about this?
SOME republican congress members want to halt this money. I'm sure it won't be enough to stop it though because the GOP is as corrupt and anti-Constitutional as the democrats.
Still, here is an excerpt from the link below on the status of this money...
Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R.-Wash.), vice chairwoman of the House Republican Conference, made it clear she would soon seek to stop the additional $100 billion that Congress (then under Democratic control) voted to give the IMF in ’09 at President Obama’s urging.
Asked by HUMAN EVENTS last week whether McMorris Rodgers would actually pursue an outright halt to the $100 billion from the U.S., her spokesman told us: “Yes, that is one of her top priorities.”
GOOD FOR HER!
Meanwhile a month ago, congress was arguing over 30 or 40 billion dollars in the budget.
Wouldn't halting this payment to the IMF be a big step towards solving our debt trouble?
PLEASE write to Congresswoman McMorris Rodgers here and support her efforts: http://mcmorris.house.gov/index.cfm?sectionid=82§iontree...
