Concedes Cuts Unlikely in His Lifetime
ed note–a few things worth noting here–
1. Why does Israel, the land of ‘God’s chosen people’, need AMERICAN MONEY? As the rest of us are told on a daily basis, GAWD loves Israel. GAWD performed all these miracles to bring Israel into existence. GAWD is stronger than anyone/anything else. Why then does GAWD need American money, military and political support for the continued existence of the Jewish state, if GAWD is behind this entire project?
2. Paul lets the cat out of the bag, that America is going bankrupt as a result of her suckling Israel monetarily to the tune of almost 10 billion dollars a year, which is close to $30 million a day. And we can be rest assured, that being an American politician, if Paul is saying this, that there is a LOT more beneath the surface that he is not saying as to just how dire the situation really is.
Sen. Rand Paul (R – KY) has been open in his calls for cutting America’s massive foreign aid budget. As one of the many sacred cows in the US budget, this has earned him angry condemnations, but hasn’t ended the talk.
So with Paul in Israel, the novel idea that the US can’t keep increasing foreign aid to Israel forever is a subject of huge controversy, and has the senator backpedaling furiously to insist that “gradual” cuts could be discussed while conceding that he doesn’t believe any cuts at all will happen in his lifetime.
“It’s unlikely anything changes,” Paul insisted, “but I think it is worth discussing.” During talks with the Jerusalem Institute for Market Studies, Paul focused on the importance of keeping the US financially solvent for Israel’s sake, saying the US would struggle to “defend Israel” if it is bankrupt.
Paul went on to say that the cuts in the foreign aid budget would start with “enemies of Israel” and that Israel itself would be among the last to face any serious cuts, saying those cuts could improve Israel’s ability to start huge wars without US permission.
