    I don't think many know the facts... but less than 1% of the federal budget goes towards foreign aid. That's honestly hardly anything. And it saves lives. 8 million people are getting life saving AIDs treatment. Are you saying they shouldn't be saved? A dollar in Africa goes a lot farther than a dollar does here. The U.S is giving about 36 billion this year. Not 50+ like someone said earlier. It is also to keep the world on better terms. We stop giving aid to the middle east, they could hold an embargo on oil. It's not just to help those in need(tho it's very important because we are far more fortunate than they are). It's to keep the peace and reduce turmoil. You have to be out of your mind to not like foreign aid. LESS THAN ONE PERCENT.

    We have a government shut down and yet there's always money for foreign aid!

    Probably the worst aspect of welfare, which almost all do-gooders ignore, is that the ability to tax and inflate leads to huge inequities domestically. It's ironic, but socialists are only ever concerned with other people's money.

    Someone tell me how it's even fvcking legal to give Foreign Aid. I mean, as US citizens we're forced to pay income tax to help run our country - so when the government gives away 50+ billion a year to other countries how is that not looting the US taxpayers?

    Someone explain this to me!

    Greetings, I respect your right to your opinion of course.
    So you believe the US should send no funds/aid to NO countries? None at all? Would you include Virgin Islands and say Israel?
