Foreign aid nonsense while budgets are cut at home

March 11, 2013 

President Obama runs around the country telling us that the sequester will cause teachers, emergency responders, ship builders, etc. to lose jobs.

He wants to cut military retiree pay and benefits.

In the meantime, his Secretary of State is giving $60 million to Syrian rebels, $450 million to Egypt, $60 million to Egyptian youth to start businesses, and guaranteeing Egypt borrowing $600 million from the IMF.

His own support to sequester is to cut tours to the White House! Will this madness never cease.
