Yes, we should send help at the expense of more money to our dept
No, we should be trying to lower the dept instead
Maybe, i like the idea of helping, but we should find an alternate means if here is one
Oh and just one more thing. my wifes family is in Cebu/Toledo/Bato - and this tragedy was VERY close to them and where I spent the winter couple of years ago. but it does not change reality.

We need to help others when we can. We have the ability to in this case, Dollars in aid should equal at least dollars spent to create US jobs though. Send them goods made here to help them out, don't send them money.
I'm sure it seems hard to get this concept when our government has awarded contracts to other countries trying to save a buck, but some spending (aid) does create US jobs. Does it create as many as many jobs as if the money were left in the private sector? I doubt it, but that is something neither of us can prove on either side.
