The system of foreign aid is broken.
You know it, I know it, and 80-90% of the American people know it.
As you are aware, we send billions of dollars each year to Pakistan, Egypt, and Libya.
Meanwhile, Pakistan continues to detain and torture Dr. Afridi, the man who helped us kill Osama bin Laden.
And now Egypt and Libya refuse to protect our embassies from radical jihadists, which resulted in the death of four Americans including Christopher Stevens, U.S. Ambassador to Libya.
They show us contempt as they cash our checks.
I will not stand by and watch as billions of our taxpayer dollars go to countries that disrespect us.
That's why I've introduced a bill to cut ALL foreign aid to Libya, Egypt, and Pakistan.
And I'm prepared to tie up the US Senate with every procedural trick in the book until there is an up-or-down vote -- even if it means SHUTTING DOWN the Federal Government!
