It was announced that the Obama administration has conveniently found $60 million to provide assistance to the Syrian opposition forces, conversely "ICE" just released illegal immigrants being held for deportation due to the lack of funds due to the pending sequester.
Hence, the safety of our borders and country have to take a back seat to the Obama foreign agenda and his propaganda.
To add insult to injury - Obama, speaking at the Newport News Shipbuilding shipyard, stated that maintenance to our aircraft carrier the "USS Abraham Lincoln" will be delayed due to the sequester. Yet recently it was announced that Egypt would be receiving millions of dollars in aid, plus multiple aircraft and tanks from our country.
Through all of this financial drama, the commander-in-chief has been flying all over the country (at major expense) stating that the sky is falling. One wonders when the country's economic health will become the economic priority of the president, rather than a political bargaining chip?
