Another place we can cut the budget – Tea Party Nation
September 19, 2011
Obama today announced he wants $1.5 trillion in tax hikes. What is it with the Party of Treason and its obsession with taking other people’s money?
How about a place where we can cut half a billion dollars right off the bat? Compared to our deficit of $1.5 trillion that is a small amount but every little bit helps, right?
How about the money we are giving the Palestinian Authority?
That is right. America gives the Palestinian Authority half a billion dollars a year in so called “foreign aid.”
Palestine is not a state, nor should it be a state. It is a small enclave of terrorists. The leading party in Palestine is Hamas. Hamas is a terrorist group. They have engaged in attacks on civilians. They have tried to Islamify the “Palestinian areas.” Hamas has engaged in repeated rocket attacks against Israel and has sent suicide bombers into Israel. The Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, who is a Hamas member condemned the killing of Osama Bin Laden, calling him a “martyr.”
This begs the question. Why the hell are American tax dollars going to this organization?
When The Obama regime is trying to go after their boogiemen, the “rich” and “evil corporations” for more money, we Americans need to be asking questions.
Let’s start with a simple question. Whose bright idea was it to start giving money to a terrorist state? What has happened to the money that we have given to this terrorist state over the years? Has that money been used to buy things like guns, bullets, bombs or rockets? Has that money been used to line the pockets of corrupt politicians in the Palestinian area? Has that money been used to advance Islam? Has that money gone to Hamas or any of the other terrorist organizations that are Islamic terrorist groups?
These are all questions that the Obama regime should be asked. Some of the answers can be easily found. Since the mid 1990’s, the United States has given over $4 billion in aid to Palestine! In 2005, then President Bush and the Congress increased the aid to Palestine. (See, you knew it had to be Bush’s fault!) In 2009, the first year of the Obama regime, aid to Palestine surged to almost $1 billion. Since then it has settled back to the range of half a billion.
Does anyone remember September 11, 2001? One of the most vivid memories of that day was video of Palestinians cheering Bin Laden and the collapse of the twin towers.
The theory behind foreign aid is that if we aid these counties, it will help America’s standing in the world. We have been contributing foreign aid for sixty years. As Dr. Phil would say, “how’s that working out for you?”
Ben Franklin said, “Insanity is trying the same thing again and expecting a different result.”
We have tried this before and it did not work.
So why are we giving a terrorist state American tax dollars?
