Keep the money here


I don’t understand why neither side of Congress ever talks about cutting and or quitting giving huge amounts of money to other countries (foreign aid).

First of all, most other countries don’t like us. Second, the money never goes to the people that need it, just to the dictators. Why can’t we just keep the money here and not cut programs to our own people. Why must our people lose their job while we fund projects out of the country?

I guess the answer must be that the senators and representatives from all parties must get some great kickbacks from these countries. Do you know? Can you get any senator or representative to answer that question? I sure can’t.
