Rand Paul: Foreign Aid Goes From Poor People In Rich Countries To Rich People In Poor Countries
SEN. RAND PAUL: A lot of foreign aid, basically, is just stolen by leaders. Mubarak got $60 billion and 20 of that probably went directly into his pocket. They're crooks. During the rioting in Tahrir square, when they were dousing them with tear gas, it was paid for with U.S. taxpayer money and manufactured in Pennsylvania. Do you think the hundred thousand people in Tahrir Square were in love with the United States, enamored more because they were being sprayed with tear gas made in America. No. Foreign aid goes from poor people in rich countries to rich people in poor countries.
Sen. Rand Paul explains why he opposes a lot of foreign aid.
