So despite adding over $3 trillion in debt in Barack Obama’s new budget bill. He plans to send almost $1 billion to those in the ‘Arab Spring’ including people in the Muslim Brotherhood who are openly declaring they will end the Camp David Accord with Israel, and have openly threatened to destroy Israel for years. They also have been well known to despise the US and threaten to bring it down ‘from within’. Yet for some reason Obama is sending them almost $1 billion in aid in his new budget bill?
(Reuters) – The White House announced plans on Monday to help “Arab Spring” countries swept by revolutions with more than $800 million in economic aid, while maintaining U.S. military aid to Egypt.
In his annual budget message to Congress, President Barack Obama asked that military aid to Egypt be kept at the level of recent years — $1.3 billion — despite a crisis triggered by an Egyptian probe targeting American democracy activists.
The proposals are part of Obama’s budget request for fiscal year 2013, which begins October 1. His requests need the approval of Congress, where some lawmakers want to cut overseas spending to address U.S. budget shortfalls and are particularly angry at Egypt.
Obama proposed $51.6 billion in funding for the U.S. State Department and foreign aid overall, when $8.2 billion in assistance to war zones is included. The “core budget” for the category would increase by 1.6 percent, officials said.
Most of the economic aid for the Arab Spring countries — $770 million — would go to establish a new “Middle East and North Africa Incentive Fund,” the president said in his budget plan.
