Cut aid to Pakistan

May 17, 2011

Our country has many problems. To list a few there are all the homes in the Midwest recently destroyed from all the tornadoes. Also, what about the future of Social Security and Medicare? How about all the homeless and hungry in our own country? How can we possibly find funding to help solve all these problems?

Here's a better question: How can our president and Congress, in good conscience, keep sending $3.2 billion each year to Pakistan? I don't even know where they find this much money especially when all I read about is how the American public will need to bear the brunt of some historic budget cuts.

This is tantamount to slap in the face to every taxpaying American.
