Unfortunately...

As much as I want to believe in Rand, this scares me. For those that say he's just playing the game and that trying to cut some foreign aid is better than none- i'd say this bill doesn't philosophically or practically speak to the damage caused by foreign aid or speak against it as a practice by the US government. This is clear in the bill's conditional nature in that Palestine will get the aid restored if they can prove the outlined conditions. If this is just an incremental step toward non-interventionism, it's directed at a very poor and bullied target - Palestine- and I can't see how this will really help. It just looks like the US is playing favorites, again. Maybe Rand is just really trying to disguise himself among his congressional co-workers, but this seems like a sad way to do it. I don't know, I want to be wrong.
