Secretary of State John Kerry has offered more aid to Egypt to help its government pay its bills (TNT, 3-4). Shouldn’t this money have gone toward our own debt, rather than to a foreign government? Our debt is $16 trillion and growing, and there aren’t any extra funds for foreign aid.
I suggest all foreign aid be suspended until our accounts are paid, and citizens of America are taken care of first. I know this will not be popular with members of Congess who authorize this aid, but I think the American people will accept it.
Please do not say it is the Republicans who are responsible for our debt. John Kerry, a Democrat, offered the aid at the expense of our country. America is following the same path as Eygpt. and unless our government changes priorities, we will end up the same way: bankrupt. And no country will be there to help us.
