Letter: U.S. tax dollars are needed at home


First Posted: 6/7/2011

President Barack Obama went to the G8 summit in France and pledged $20 billion to Tunisia and Egypt. Earlier this year, he gave $2 billion of taxpayer money to Brazil so that country could develop oil drilling. I could go on and on of the billions of dollars Obama has given to other countries.But the Federal Emergency Management Agency has an annual budget of less than $2 billion. That is to help take care of U.S. citizens who have been hit by tornados, floods, fires and the such.So I think it is about time Obama starts spending money on suffering Americans instead of all these other countries.
