Why get rid of foreign aid? While the US should prioritize itself first in spending, scrapping foreign aid altogether would reduce its influence worldwide.
Because all that foreign aid has done, is create a dependency on the U.S. that I think is unhealthy. Like the entitlement programs here at home, the benefiters become reliant on it, and do nothing to ween themselves off that crack. I'm be for scrapping all entitlement programs and foreign aid and slim down the Federal Government greatly.
