What debate? That we should

What debate? That we should only give foreign aid to countries that respect us? That's idiotic. we should never steal money from americans and give it to other sovereign countries contingent on their 'liking' or 'respecting' us. Where in our constitution is our government authorized to provide foreign aid to other countries? Why should any elected representative be 'debating' this issue?
