“Why is the U.S. tax payer asked to pay for a cricket league in Afghanistan?” Politicians are more COMPASSIONATE when they give out SOMEONE ELSE’s money!

We Spent $45 million for a natural gas station in Afghanistan; we spend money on home mortgages in Nigeria, on tourism in Albania, on teaching people in Kenya how to use Facebook. “What about building our country?”

Stop Sending Money for Foreign Aid and Send some for Hurricane Harvey.

Dr. Rand Paul’s ‘America First’ Plan Will Fund Hurricane Relief By Cutting Wasteful Spending
Stop Sending Money for Foreign Aid and Send some for Hurricane Harvey.

The Senate on Thursday rejected a proposal from Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., to impose spending cuts to offset billions of dollars in new spending to help Texas and Louisiana recovery from Hurricane Harvey.

Paul said rushing to pass a bill creating billions of dollars in additional U.S. debt was unwise, and said senators should work to offset the funding. Paul said failing to offset the spending makes lawmakers “like dinosaurs: big hearts and small brains.”.

“Big hearts, small brains”
It is argued that you are more compassionate if you give out someone else’s money.

“We send billions and billions of dollars to countries who hate us.” “We send billions and billions of dollars to countries who burn our flags.”

We spend over $100 billion dollars to blow up roads and rebuild them in Afghanistan. “What about building our country?”
“In the foreign aid account, we spent $273 million dollars last year teaching people how to apply for more of our money.”

We spent $1 million for a televised cricket league in Afghanistan. “The only problem, they don’t really have any televisions.” “Why is the U.S. tax payer asked to pay for a cricket league in Afghanistan?”

We spent $45 million for a natural gas station in Afghanistan with an original estimate of $0.5 million. But nobody in Afghanistan has natural gas cars. “So we bought them cars.” “These are the people who chant ‘death of America'”

“We are spending money on home mortgages in Nigeria. We spent money on tourism in Albania.”
“We spent money on teaching people in Kenya how to use Facebook”

“What about building our country?”
“They are giving away your grandchildren’s money”

“We have US A.I.D. money going to Cambodia to help them get cost effective or lower cost insurance.” “We couldn’t even do anything with the health care in our country.”

But Paul lost his argument when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., made a motion to table Paul’s proposal. McConnell’s motion won the support of senators from both parties, and passed 87-10. The 10 votes against tabling Paul’s proposal all came from GOP budget hawks.

After that vote, the Senate then rejected a proposal from Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., to only take up the House-passed bill. That bill provided $7.85 billion in relief funding, and the Senate is looking to nearly double that funding in the bill it will likely pass this week. Sasse’s vote was tabled by a 72-25 vote.
