Why Does Sanders Support Foreign Aid to Israel? – Jacob Hornberger

Why should hard-pressed American taxpayers be forced to fund any foreign regime, including the dictatorial ones, like Egypt, which is the second largest recipient of U.S. foreign aid after Israel? Why shouldn’t Americans be free to keep their money and decide for themselves to whom to donate?

Moreover, consider the amount of federal spending and federal debt. The deficit is likely to hit $1 trillion this year. That means the feds are spending $1 trillion more than they are bringing in with taxes. Moreover, the federal debt now exceeds $22 trillion and is climbing. Trump and the Democrats have even struck a deal that lifts the debt ceiling again and are making sure that the issue doesn’t arise again until after the presidential election. Why should there be any foreign aid under these conditions?

How long are the American people going to put up with Republican-Democratic policies that are destroying both their liberty and their economic well-being? I say: Let’s cancel all foreign aid — to the Israeli government, to the Egyptian government, and to everyone else. It is the fiscally response thing to do. It is also the moral thing to do.

What can we do? Probably the most important thing we can do is stop funding those who would harm us. Our “foreign aid” has gone in the past to empower Saddam Hussein, Osama bin Laden, the Taliban, and ISIS. When they turn against us, we reap what we sow. – Dr. Mary Ruwart
