Where is all the taxpayers' money going? I would like to know when the public gave the government the right to send billions of dollars to any and all other countries that have their hands out? Did we ever vote to do that? Then the U.S. ends up borrowing money from China each year.
We could use the money sent to other countries right here for education, housing, roads and bridges, and feeding hungry citizens right here in the U.S.
I know that most of the money sent to other countries is to convince those countries to let the U.S. tell those countries' officials how to run their own countries. A fine example of that is being debated now with billions in aid to Egypt being held up until officials there can get a government in place that is acceptable to U.S. officials.
Can we stop that practice?
