Rand Paul: Don't Start Foreign Aid Cuts with IsraelSubmitted by Neotheone on Mon, 12/24/2012 - 12:29
Well, Merry Christmas to Israel.
Senator Rand Paul says he is against foreign aid, but he apparently wants to cut off foreign aid in some kind of order.
The Kentucky Courier-Journal's James R. Carroll reports on an interview he had with Rand:
Paul said that foreign aid cuts “should start with countries who have not been good allies. ... I wouldn’t start with Israel.
“Whether or not we can afford to continue aid to Israel over time? There needs to be discussion with Israel over them being more independent over time.”
The article did not specify what specific countries Rand would cut off first and did not specify how Rand determines countries to not be "good allies."
