    As well as $1.3 billion to the Egyptian military. Why exactly are we still handing money out to other nations when we can't even pay our own bills?

    Why are we handing money over to nations that have openly declared their intentions to destroy this country?

    Because he's a nincompoop.

    That and his budget proposal isn't serious...He's setting up the "do-nothing congress" strawman to run against.

    Hilarious. Bush spent trillions and rebuilt Iraq for "free" and Republicans are complaining about Obama keeping the Middle East from slipping into chaos after they completely fucked it up. I'm talking "hilarious".

    We don't even know what these countries will look in a few years, throwing billions of dollars at them is not the best move.

    Like I said, the budget isn't serious....Look for more details like this to come out, which will make the budget proposal impossible to get through congress.

    Mark it down.

    Barry can't run on his sucky record so lets make Congress the scapgoat for his ineptitude.

    Hope the Congress critters scream like stuck pigs and make sure the folks know where the real blame lies.

    Of course Americans aren't that swift. They elected the dufus after all.
