Rand Introduces ‘America First’ Bill To Strip Aid From Our Enemy
Article from Newsmax by Jason Devaney.
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., introduced a bill Wednesday that would redirect federal money marked for Pakistan to the federal Highway Trust Fund to help repair America’s infrastructure.
Called “End Aid to Pakistan,” the legislation is aimed to prevent the Department of State and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) from shipping U.S. taxpayer money to Pakistan.
“We fail our responsibilities to protect our country and properly steward taxpayers’ hard-earned money when we support countries that chant ‘Death to America’ and burn our flag,” Paul said in a statement. “Let’s bring that money home and use it to help rebuild our infrastructure instead of giving it to a nation that persecutes Christians and imprisons people such as the doctor that helped us get Osama Bin Laden.”

Pakistan is not the only country that doesn’t support our country so lets do the same for them, stop financing them with taxpayer money. It seems we not only have to support the whole dam world but we have to pay for their security! No More.
Foreign aid money should be used to help pay the national debt. US should not be borrowing money to give to other countries, which is happening.
No More Foreign Aid Money unless the country backs up America and support the USA and its Western Democratic ideals x If America needs to give some Aid -then get some Collateral and Real Estate should suffice- that way if their Gov’t squanders the Money – then let their people go after their People in charge
I agree 100% cease giving to the countries that hate us and use that money to build the wall!
THAT SEEMS TO MAKE SENSE, HOPE THAT IDEA IS NOT A ONE OFF. KEEP THE MONEY AT HOME , REBUID AMERICA.
I. Agree,! Use the funds to rebuilds America
I’ll certainly go with the flow !! ANY country that does not support America SHOULD NOT receive ANY U.S. aid — and that includes any U.S. dollars which flow through other organizations (are you listening U.N. ??)
Does anybody see fault with this kind of thinking? If you do, you are an enemy of the repulic.
We the people need to follow Rand’s thinking on this not only for Pakistan but worldwide. No one profits by the American people who do not respect the American people. Our enemy’s may have profited by us when there were New World Order puppets in our oval office but that has changed for our oval office is occupied by one of us now. Thank you Rand for bringing this to light and thank you President Trump for restoring America.
Go Rand go. MAGA.
I agree with this but I don’t agree with the hard to read the glaring yellow background that stops me from reading too much of the email,
Love Rand Paul, he’s a True Patriot ~
send it my way and I will sign it in a heartbeat
I will sign it!!
Why are we giving money to a country that burns our flag and screams death to Americans??
Give them nothing!!!!!!!
Ever since I can remember as a boy, my mother and father saying to me, ” son, charity begins at home “. Well in this case, our hard-earned money for tax purposes have been wasted on foreign ventures, our government illegally committed this nation into. Remember President George Washington’s farewell address ( be friends, promote commerce and stay out of foreign entanglements ) ?. I shout in anger, the HELL with Pakistan and bring our troops and money home.
