We must limit and reexamine who the U.S. sends Foreign Aid. Eliminate FA to countries who hate America, you would think this would be a no-brainer. Appropriations don't always have to be spent; they can be re-appropriated or not spent.
When America is prosperous and out of debt we can afford to be wildly generous. But until then, I think I speak for most Americans that FA should be strategically targeted to allies and used only to benefit emergencies and natural disasters. This money could be better spent to grow the U.S. economy, strengthen our military, pay off our debts and help Veterans, to name a few better uses of taxpayers money. When America can not pay her own bills, balance a budget to keep her own government open, we can not afford unnecessary FA. If FA actually worked, why hasn't the billions of taxpayers dollars actually made any positive change in countries that are its beneficiary?
