Yet...

Not a word about the Federal Reserve spending 40 billion A MONTH buying back its own bad debt. The Ponzi Scheme is going to collapse, but not until the bank fraud drains every last ounce of property, gold and investments from the American people. We have to stop this now, or we will be the losers living on the soil our forefathers fought and died for...

This is sickening.

I'm against forcefully taking away from one group so the gov can give to another. But if we must give this kind of money away, it should be to other Americans.

$70 BILLIONS

Folks, I'm afraid it's 70 billions.

Rationale ?

$70 million barely covers a few months activity of a hundred or so U.S. troops overseas.

Want an order of magnitude ?

"U.S. Spending PER SECOND : $5,000 in 2008 (per Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on May 5, 2008)

Cost of deploying one U.S. soldier for one year in Iraq : $390,000."

(Old) sources :

http://usliberals.about.com/od/homelandsecurit1/a/IraqNumber...

Here, per the OP's, it's about a pledge for the ENTIRE Israeli military force, spanning at least a year (likely more, and expect this pledge to be "extended" in some future, btw).

We U.S. tax payers have to "deal with it".

You may be right but...

...I want an official U.S. government statement on how much money Obama gave to Israel for their "Iron Dome" project.

I want hard numbers and I can't seem to find them anywere.

One story says millions and the next says billions.

WE HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW.

H.R. 4133, S. 2165, and "IronDome"

Does this help ?

H.R. 4133

http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/112/hr4133/text

Is in fact paired with, also, of the same title :

S. 2165

http://www.cbo.gov/sites/default/files/cbofiles/attachments/...

But yes, that U.S. help fund Obama refers to as being for Israel's "IronDome" may be a little less than $70 billion :

http://www.upi.com/Business_News/Security-Industry/2012/10/0...

Though I definitely don't see how that could ever be in the 70-ish millions range only, given the sort of figures (all in the hundreds millions and above) found at the latter link...

Video was loaded in July

Is there something new?

I think it's million - but

why did Obama change it to Billion.

Maybe that was an intended way to make it billion but that would be DOUBLE the total amount of foreign aid we give away to every country each year.

That's why I think it's million.

But even that is egregious.

Obama the most supportive administration to Israel says their PM

(CNN) – Israel's Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense Ehud Barak said the Obama White House has been the most supportive administration throughout the two countries' diplomatic relations on matters of Israeli security, in an interview to air Monday on "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer."

Barak -also a former prime minister of Israel - said that though historically administrations from both political parties have supported the Jewish state President Obama's support, security-wise, is unparalleled.

It's gotta go somewhere!!

It would be wasted here on Christmas gifts for sheeple and we all know sheeple can't make good decisions. Why not print more money and give it away too?

No wonder counterfeiters print their own and spread it around. If the government is counterfeiting and giving it away, why can't everyone else?
