I know you don’t oppose helping those in need. When you look around your communities or at what has just happened to the people of the Philippines, you have a heart to help. Many of you are giving hours and hours of time, in addition to your heard-earned money.
Let me ask you this - if you were asked to manage taxpayer money, and that you had to spend it on something, what would you use it for? Let’s say you were responsible for $75 million of taxpayer dollars…
There’s definitely no shortage of worthy causes here in the United States that desperately need money to continue helping American citizens. We might disagree on what the money should go towards, but there is no denying that such domestic needs exist.
If you were to make a list ranking potential recipients of American taxpayer money, where would you rank the Palestinian National Authority? Probably very low on your list of priorities, right?
Well, Secretary of State John Kerry apparently thinks differently.
When he recently met with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, Kerry promised the terrorist financier-turned-politician that the United States would commit another $75 million dollars towards infrastructure development in Palestine.
Where does it stop? Will we keep writing checks to these regimes until we overdraw our accounts? When will Congress realize that financing Middle Eastern regimes, despots, and terrorist organizations is not in their job description?
$75 million dollars is certainly a lot of money… There’s no doubt about it. But it is only a drop in the bucket when it comes to how much U.S. Aid to the Middle East and the rest of the world has skyrocketed during the Obama administration.
During just his first term of office, Barack Obama’s administration has given over $32.2 BILLION to countries in the Middle East, many of which sponsor terrorism and turn a blind eye while their citizens burn American flags in the streets.
That’s just what Obama has done in four years and it doesn’t even account the billions of dollars in military aid that we have also given these countries.
A lot is said about how President Obama values global citizenship over national cohesion. Much of this can easily be exaggerated. But there is no question that while Obama is levying tax after tax on Americans citizens and businesses, he is turning around and giving this money to countries with well-known terrorist ties and long histories of human rights abuses.
If you crunch the numbers over the last four years of foreign aid expenditures, here is what you’ll find:
Kathleen Sebelius helped to change the grandfather clause making insurance policies null and void and therefore more expensive for taxpaying Americans like you.
At the same time, Obama’s administration has given approximately $8.49 Billion in Foreign Aid specifically earmarked for healthcare programs abroad!
You see, Kerry’s recent promise to give Palestine $75 Million to develop infrastructure is, in the grand scheme of things, just a drop in the bucket. But it is representative of this administration’s willingness to repeatedly take money from the American people and redistribute it around the globe.
It is absolutely unacceptable to repeatedly attack the American people on issues like Healthcare, Gun Control, and Environmental Regulation, only to turn around and distribute billions of dollars in taxpayer money abroad for these same types of programs.
There are tons of American families and businesses that are being forced into bankruptcy while Obama and his representatives gallivant around the globe writing checks to governments and regimes that despise us and support terrorist organizations that target us.
Enough is enough! It’s time to stop hemorrhaging money abroad just to prop up governments that hate us! Whether you realize it or not, your taxes are being used to subsidize programs around the world.
How did you feel when you learned that Obama and Kathleen Sebelius lied to you and secretly worked to make your healthcare more expensive and less available?
Here is what we’ve just learned:
The Department of Health and Human Services alone (responsible for the Obamacare debacle) has spent $5.25 Billion to make healthcare less expensive and more available for people abroad.
The constitution says that Congress controls the money and the checkbook. Yet the Obama administration believes that it can continue to tax and regulate you, and use the revenue to fund its expensive social and economic programs abroad.
It is time for Congress to put an end to Obama’s bloated foreign spending and take away the administration’s blank checks.
We must stop Obama from using our tax dollars to prop up governments that turn around and use it against us and our way of life!
