The new COVID relief bill gives $500,000,000 to Israel. All due respect and all that, but what does Israel have to do with our COVID troubles?
It also offers a bunch of money to Egypt, Burma, and even has a provision about racehorses. And 4 billion for new weapons for the Navy. Well, at least it’s US Navy, so let’s fire up the printing presses, right?
We are being had.
P.S. I forgot to mention a cool half billion in aid to Ukraine. I’m obviously against that even more than I’m against aid to Burma or Israel.
