FOREIGN AID: The Great American Taxpayer Ripoff!

DEMAND AN UP-OR-DOWN VOTE
ON ALL FOREIGN COUNTRIES
RECEIVING YOUR TAX DOLLARS!

Congress sends as much as $50 billion per year to foreign countries that hate America. Many of these countries refuse to even account for what the money is spent on.

While this is happening, Social Security, veterans' services and much-needed programs for AMERICANS are being cut either by inflation or direct fiscal cuts.

All foreign aid is lumped into ONE BILL each year so Congress cannot even stop sending foreign aid to countries like China, Russia and Cuba because of procedural rules. This video explains the issue in detail:

HERE ARE TWO WAYS YOU CAN HELP REP. TED POE (R-TX) GATHER MORE CO-SPONSORS FOR HIS BILL REQUIRING AN UP-OR-DOWN VOTE FOR EVERY COUNTRY RECEIVING FOREIGN AID:

Use the form to the right to send FaxGrams to as many Representatives and Senators as you can.

Then, call your one Representative and Senators at 202-224-3121. Tell them to support legislation requiring an up-or-down vote for each and every country receiving foreign aid!

As one example, Afghanistan alone has received more than $51 billion in US foreign aid since Obama has been in office. The Afghan government has NEVER allowed us to audit those funds to see where they went!

For all we know the money went directly into the pockets and Swiss bank accounts of corrupt government officials.

This continues to happen because all foreign aid packages go into ONE omnibus spending bill each year.

Here are just a few of the outrageous sums of your tax money sent to foreign countries in 2015:

  • Lebanon - $166 million
  • Jordan - $1 BILLION
  • Pakistan - $787 million
  • Afghanistan - $11 BILLION
  • Communist China - $13.7 million
  • Bangladesh - $199 million
  • Communist Vietnam - $112 million
  • Ukraine - $334 million
  • Ethiopia - $504 million
  • South Africa - $436 million

The list goes on and on for 190 countries receiving your tax dollars. There would be bipartisan support to reject the foreign aid for many of these countries if only there were an up-or-down vote on individual countries.

But because Congress votes on all countries in one package bill, Representatives and Senators must fund countries that hate us. This is an outrageous ripoff!

Send your FaxGrams to Congress right now and tell them to support Congressman Poe's legislation to require an up-or-down vote on all countries receiving foreign aid!

Proverbs 20:21 states, "There is desirable treasure and oil in the house of the wise, but a foolish man squanders it."

America is doing much worse than foolishly squandering our wealth:  We are stupidly throwing the money in a black hole where it promptly disappears into the bank accounts of foreign dictators, Muslim terrorist countries and others.

That money could be put to good use for Social Security, veterans hospitals or... heaven forbid... not collected from the taxpayers in the first place!

But until we convince Congress to adopt this plan we will continue throwing money away and suffering for it.

Send your FaxGrams using the form to the right to demand an up-or-down vote on all countries receiving US foreign aid! And don't forget to call your Representative and Senators using this number: 202-224-3121.

In addition, please share this message on your social media pages with your family members, friends and acquaintances:

Pray For US needs your financial support for our ministry operations in defense of America. If you are able, please give a contribution in addition to the cost of sending your FaxGrams today.

Sincerely,

Ed Royce
2310 Rayburn House Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20515

Dear Chairman Royce:

America is throwing away taxpayer money to foreign despots every single year due congressional procedures surrounding foreign aid. US foreign assistance to 190 countries is voted on in a single appropriations bill. Because of this procedure, countries from Cuba to Communist China are receiving foreign aid even though (I am guessing) a majority of Congress would not approve of that. Certainly the American people do not support it!

Afghanistan has received more than $50 billion in US foreign aid since Barack Obama has been in office, yet the Afghan government has never let us audit the funds to see where the money is going. I have no doubt that much of it is now padding the mattresses of corrupt government officials. Why does the Islamic Republic of Jordan, where one of the wealthiest despot kings in the Middle East resides, receive $1 billion in US foreign aid every year? Why does Communist Vietnam collect $100 million from us every year? It is because all foreign aid is lumped into one bill.

Congressman Ted Poe has a plan for legislation that would require an up-or-down vote on every single country receiving foreign aid from the American taxpayers. I encourage you to speak with him and co-sponsor this legislation. I have no doubt that our foreign aid budget would be drastically cut with bipartisan support if every nation receiving our hard-earned cash received an up-or-down vote.

Our national debt is now $64 trillion and our unfunded liabilities as a nation are more than $100 trillion. It is time to start cutting spending immediately and foreign aid is a simple source that could be cut by requiring an up-or-down vote for all countries. It is unfair to the taxpayers and it is unfair to YOU as a Member of Congress because you are forced to fiscally support countries that you might not otherwise support (at least I hope you would not). So please talk with Congressman Poe and co-sponsor his plan to require an up-or-down vote on all countries receiving foreign aid.
