    Regardless, again, 5 minutes ago you apparently thought we spent around $3 TRILLION on foreign aid... More than the entire federal budget... Now that you know how crazy that was, how does that change your view of the world and the government? It must change it radically, right?
    What is the line item in the budget for foreign aid?

    I don't know how it is worded wherever you're looking. I posted the source that shows that it is 0.13% of our GDP. If you want to try to find a different source, feel free.

    Regardless though, again, your total world has shifted in the last 15 minutes. You used to think that we were spending a crippling $3 trillion on foreign aid. Now you know it is only $18 billion. That must radically change your perspective on things, right? Talk through those changes in your view.

    Foreign aid is in International Affairs and the 2010 budget amount was 45 billion dollars, suggest you learn to get your information from the actual budget

    How many times do I have to post a link to the budget of the United States?

    Looks like Obama ought to start taxing the freeloaders rather than the minority who pay most of the taxes

    Why do you think that? International Affairs sounds to me like it's talking about the state department, but no way to know since you're only linking to a list of like 100 documents and it could mean totally different things depending on which one you found it in...

    Regardless, again your understanding of how much foreign aid we give was off by orders of magnitude. Obviously a view based on your previous understanding would need a radical revision to still make sense even if your new numbers were right. So lets hear it. How does that change your views?

    the liars are people who pretend that not paying income tax is justified because they pay other taxes-mainly with money given them by the government. the fact is they are freeloaders and they are not paying the tax that funds almost half the government functions they also pay none of the death tax either

    the people the parasitic dems want to tax the most not only pay the most income and death taxes we also pay more than our share of the other taxes as well

    I gave you the link to the budget, Foreign aid is in International Affairs, look it up. The state department administers foreign aid thus controls the budget. Not even sure why this is an issue to you but my bet is no other country in the world sends countries as much as the U.S.

    I would like to see healthcare costs for illegal immigrants deducted from that foreign aid.
