Ending Foreign Aid NOW Would Allow Federal Government To Operate For Another Month...

The corrupt congress has "shut down" the federal government BUT...I'll bet the FOREIGN AID KEEPS FLOWING!!!

It costs the Federal Government about 1.8 BILLION per day or 55 BILLION per month to operate.

So - They could continue to operate for another month without affecting any domestic operations, by simply ENDING ALL FOREIGN AID EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY.

We (the TAXPAYING CITIZENS of the USA) are FORCED BY CONGRESS to give away 55 to 60 BILLION EACH YEAR of our hard-earned DOLLARS to foreign governments.

It's CRIMINAL, UNCONSTITUTIONAL and downright THEFT.

Yet NO ONE IN CONGRESS even MENTIONS foreign aid during this "shutdown."

It shows the utter HYPOCRACY of the corrupt congress.

END ALL FOREIGN AID FIRST before you cut ONE PENNY of ANY federal domestic espenditures.

I don't understand why Americans...

...aren't up in arms that the government is STILL giving away billions in foreign aid.

How do they get away with THAT without anyone even questioning the congress about it???

here here!

here here!

I have YET to hear ONE member of congress mention...

...foreign aid.

I'll bet it continues on even amidst the government "shutdown."

But foreign aid should have been the FIRST thing they cut. ALL of it. To EVERY country.

What's going on here???

Rand should be making a BIG DEAL of this while he has the chance.

I totally disagree. END ALL FOREIGN AID FIRST.

Because once you allow your government to give money to total strangers, then philosophically it undermines ANY attempt to reign them in on any other fiscal issue.

NOT ONE of the many nations to which we give money pays any taxes to help run the USA.

EVEN Obamacare, as bad as it is , is not nearly as bad as foreign aid - which is PURE THEFT from us to people around the world and many who hate us anyway.

It's time for the rest of the world to quit getting our money. That includes Israel.

WHERE in our Constitution does it authorize the congress to give away even one penny of our money to foreign governments???

Obamacare is a bigger deal. A

Obamacare is a bigger deal. A big argument against foreign aid, we use it all the time, is that we can't be worrying about other countries when we have to fix our country. Obamacare will kill so many jobs, it is already happening, you don't have to look far to see it. It's a mega middle class killer. It HAS to be stopped.

Even though foreign aid is atrocious, at a time like this, we have to fix the homefront first.

Would ending foreign aid help or hurt demand for dollars?

If the governments don't get their checks they may buy dollars from their citizens, driving up the 'price' of dollars, or they may decide to go off the dollar entirely if the source dries up.

I take it that was a joke Homeland Security...
