Government makes U.S. Skies Dangerous While Giving Away BILLIONS in Foreign Aid

Due to the sequester cuts, travellers in the U.S. are not only being inconvenienced, but also endangered as air traffic controllers are furloughed.

The FAA said this about the cuts which began this week: "The $637 million budget reduction to the FAA has now taken effect as part of the across the board spending cuts that began in March."

MEANWHILE - WE GIVE AWAY AT LEAST 55 BILLION DOLLARS IN FOREIGN AID EVERY YEAR!!!

So I ask...YOU MEAN WE CAN'T FIND $637 MILLION IN CUTS TO FOREIGN AID?

PEOPLE MAY DIE IN THE AIR BECAUSE RATS LIKE PATTY MURRAY AND LYNDSEY GRAHAM SUPPORT FOREIGN AID, BUT VOTE TO MAKE OUR SKIES LESS SAFE BY CUTTING AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS.

These people in Congress are CRIMINALS and should be charged with TREASON against the citizens of the United States.

What I wanna know is why the government pays for air traffic controllers and not the airports.

WHY aren't Americans screaming about this?

Or maybe it's just A-OK to give away our money to foreign governments while they cripple our domestic airline system.

Some might wonder if it's the government's role to oversee the airline system.

I think constitutionally it's acceptable because it falls under infrastructure (as do things like the postal service which the founders approved).

BUT FOREIGN AID IS NOT in ANY WAY a proper role of the government.

In fact it is THEFT from us and re-distributed to leaders of foreign nations.
