US Foreign Aid

Foreign Aid Giveaway

Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans gave Americans a slap in the face when they approved hundreds of billions of dollars in Foreign Aid but only $600 for American Citizens. 

"On Dec. 21, lawmakers in both chambers of Congress passed a $2.3 trillion spending package: a roughly $1.4 trillion omnibus spending bill — consisting of 12 different bills to fund the government during fiscal year 2021 — and a separate, approximately $900 billion bill specifically for COVID-19 relief. Lawmakers also passed several other smaller bills.

It’s the $1.4 trillion part of the package that included funding for U.S. policies and priorities within the country and abroad." (Source)

In other words, the Covid Relief Part of the National Spending Bill was carved out as a separate law. But that didn't stop Lawmakers from spending billions of dollars on foreign aid.
