Libya is next to Saudi Arabia in oil revenues and yet John Kerry took them a nice big PGA style check for $450 million as a gesture when he visited and the same to Ebypt whom he visited next. And a Dem Senator, on Obama's request has requested that we send another $250 million in aid to the AlQuida rebels in Syria. If he has a billion to send others countries why does he not have money for Americans? Sorry about the cuts he made to the Health grants, but we need to ask why he can send a billion there. The total we have spent on Syrias religious war is over $20 billion so far, $20 billion in Libya.
