Letter to the editor: President Obama put America first

Posted: Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

For many years, the USA has supplied Israel and Egypt with $5 billion in military aid – money Israel uses to kill, subjugate and confine Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. Last year, President Barack Obama gifted Israel $70 million more, and, this year, $205 million more for Israel’s Iron Dome Project.

Secretary of State John Kerry gifted another $250 million to Egypt’s economy and $60 million more to Egypt’s political leaders, and Obama pledged $1 billion more.

At the same time, America has near 4 million homeless people and near half are children. We have 12 million unemployed Americans and 48 million with no health care.

America is twisting in the wind with $16 trillion in debt with annual interest payments of $400 billion with China receiving a lot of that interest payment on the $3 trillion they hold in U.S. bonds, and while China is investing in infrastructure across the third world, in America, our infrastructure is crumbling.

While America spends more on military than the rest of the world put together, our president and Democrats and some Republicans are wanting to give amnesty to 12 million illegal aliens.
