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.”
