$900 Million For Palestinians
Our unemployment rate is heading toward 10%. Each page of the 1,000 page healthcare bill will cost another $1 billion of your tax money. Our deficit is increasing so fast that experts are starting to ask, “What comes after trillion?” In view of this financial mess, I thought you might want to know what Obama and Hillary think is a really great use of another $900 million of your money.
They are sending it to those lovely folks in the Palestinian Authority. You know, the Jew-haters and America-bashers we regularly see on TV. Two hundred million dollars was sent on July 24th, and the Obama Administration held a special teleconference to announce the “good news” to our Palestinian “allies.” The money is supposed to stay out of the hands of terrorists and be used for job creation. If you believe that, I have a great bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.
Here’s the point: Sending your tax dollars to the Palestinians is a bad idea even in good times. Every poll shows the Palestinians hate us, no matter how much money we send them. But it is even more wrong-headed to send so much money when our country is on the ropes economically. President Obama should cancel the remaining $700 million and use it for job growth in communities like Palestine, Pennsylvania, where American families are hurting.
