More Foreign Aid Please!

Sane people who don’t live in Washington D.C. might wonder how it came to be that $58,000,000,000 in foreign aid is sent overseas each year.   Why would the federal government export so many hard-earned American dollars?  Meet Jacqueline Morette.

 

These billboards can be found all over Washington D.C., particularly at Reagan National Airport, where they greet members of Congress weekly, and their staffs.  “Stand with Morette: Don’t Cut Foreign Aid!,” Oxfam tells everyone arriving in or out of Washington.  There’s no telling how much the “nonprofit” Oxfam paid to saturate D.C. with their more-tax-dollars-overseas message.

So the next time you wonder how it came to be that we spend $58 billion on foreign aid, remember Jacqueline.
