“Why Do We Need to Pay Them to Hate Us?” Obama’s Foreign Aid Policy Makes No Sense

Recently Texas Republican Congressman Ted Poe reintroduced an idea whose time might have finally come. He addressed Congress asking that we review the foreign aid we are sending to countries around the world, with the purpose of cutting most of it.  Referring to the many countries with their hands out looking for foreign aid, Poe asked a direct question: “Why do we need to pay them to hate us?”

    How amusing! 150 countries get money from the US in foreign aid and still they have the gall to be ungrateful and hateful.

Bring manufacturing, cut out the bs regulations for starting a business or corporation, cut the insane taxes on the middle class. Ha, I call that a recipe for success! What say you?
