More interested in helping foreigners

John Kerry and the Obama administration recently announced the release of $1 billion in U.S. dollars to aid Egypt. It is interesting that this administration can find billions of dollars to give away in foreign aid while our federal government goes deeper in debt, the deficit rises, and the only answers being discussed are how much to cut benefits and increase taxes for U.S. citizens and cut funding for the U.S. military.

The current budget for foreign aid is about $58 billion this is almost 70 percent of the total amount of mandatory cuts required in the sequestration process. It has become very obvious that this administration cares much more about taking care of people in foreign countries than it does about taking care of its own citizens particularly the citizens who work and pay taxes. Bring on the revolution -- we need to kick them all out of office and restore some sanity to our government policies and practices.
