Success - Article sent! close

Isn't it amazing that the government shutdown put government employees out of work and we closed national parks and monuments and cut payments to servicemen's families? We had no money to pay them.

Then less than two weeks after it ended, Washington quietly decided to release more than $1.6 billion in aid to Pakistan. The same country that gave Osama bin Laden a place to live.

Wow, we sure have a lot of money to give to people who harbor our enemies but none for Americans.
