I don't understand how a country that is so broke can lend aid to any other country. While we fight over road repairs, bridge rebuilding, HEALTH CARE and the overall lackluster of our own economy, why are we sending money that we don't have to someone else?

Washington Post: Untangling the fate of U.S. aid to Egypt
I agree with Doug. End it not just for Egypt, but for all.
Doug, and John,,, You both know it is not as simple as that. It is a shame that we have to buy our allies, we should have left Russia to rot, what did we achieve helping them? Look up the number of countries there are in the world. There are about 190,,,,,,, some are our friends, some are neutral, some are set on destroying us,,, We probably give aid to all but a small handful. I looked it up we give aid to about 165 of these counties, Want to get sick,,, look up these countries
We don't have the money to give them. This country is running in a deficit. We borrow money from China to give to the rest of the world while the government wants even more money from the working class. Did this tax freedom ever come to fruition, or was it just another "vote for me" empty promise?
Why bother Doug, he was voted in by a nation who did not and still does not know everything about him. Then voted him in again basically because, he is the evil everyone knows. People do not like Obamacare but, alot of those people voted him in again. As far as I am concern those people do not have the right to b i t c h since, they allowed it to happen. We all knew he was full of empty promises before his second term as President. Now his administration has added more questionable dialog at best with issues such as Libya (4 dead Americans), Eygpt (Muslim Brotherhood who are showing their true colors), IRS (Scandal with control/oversight of Obamacare), George Zimmerman (My son would look like Trevon statement and further focusing on race rather than fact.), Obamacare (You can keep your healthcare and it will lower the cost of your healthcare), etc....... Oh yeah, before you know it, we will probably get more involved with Syria's Civil War. Already senting weapons to Syrian Rebels. Does Bin Laden come to mind on that?
Stop foreign aid and fix America! If, it is not already too late? Wait, I am not speaking Chinese yet so, maybe we have some time left to turn things around.
If they close the Suez Canal, what do you think the price of gas will go to?
