    wrong.

    foreign aid is about helping other nations after funding our own obligations, not prioritizing their needs over ours.

    such an interpretation is dishonest at best.

    ...yet we have tons of homeless and starving people over here.

    There are many simple needs we should be taking care of, but we're not at the same time of giving foreign aid.

    Priorities need checking, no?

    Oh don't pull that. If you want to bow out, just say so, but don't randomly jump the train of thought.

    I am unsure how you can claim this is the product of the congress, when his administration would decide when and how they were going to conduct the signing.

    it has to do with your stated position that once our domestic needs are met we can afford to give $70 million to israel
    his point was that our domestic needs are not first being met
    hence, we are placing israeli wants above American citizen needs
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    Iraq & Afghanistan get almost twice as much yearly aid as Israel gets, EACH.

    but its the aid to Israel that gets the hate. I wonder why.
