Obama Increased Foreign Aid Spending 80%

Indonesia only got $600 million from Obama. No wonder this woman is angry.

The good news is that according to Obama, we don’t have a spending problem. We just have a giant hole at the bottom of the economy named Barack Obama. One of the places that hole goes is foreign aid.

In fiscal 2008, the government spent a total of $11.427 billion in international assistance programs, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement. In fiscal 2011, according to the statement, it spent $20.599 billion—an increase of $9.172 billion, or 80 percent, from 2008.

9 billion dollars? That’s nothing. It’s the price of an Obama vacation, a Michelle Obama dress and a green energy solar windmill that eats eagles and turns out jobs in Finland.

Since 2008, international assistance spending has increased each year. In fiscal 2009, it climbed to $14.827 billion. In fiscal 2010, it jumped to $20.038 billion. And, in fiscal 2011, it climbed again to $20.599 billion.

It’s only reasonable. You can’t expect the Muslim world to hate us for free.

That big tax hike last week? A third of it just went to foreign aid. Luckily it’s patriotic to pay taxes to Pakistan.

    Not counting the spending on legal and illegal foreigners in America.

    At this point anyone who thinks we do NOT have a spending "problem" is unfit for office, and I don't care if they are democrat or republican or what office they hold. There is something seriously wrong with Obama's vision for this country's future, but above all his inability to grasp economic realities is dangerous.

    I have tried very hard to understand the allure of this person and I can not, but what is even more baffling is why the rest of the world whose fortunes rise and fall with the United States are willing to let him destroy their investments, their economies along with ours?

      Those are all good questions…."I have tried very hard to understand the allure of this person"

      In my opine, Obama's fraud lies within the MSM refusing to question, or to vet his hidden background. Because if they ever got serious about the truth, or if a federal court allowed discovery to make his life an open book, they'd find he should be either rotting in a federal penitentiary, or be executed.

        "Obama's fraud lies within the MSM refusing to question, or to vet his hidden background."

        That's a huge part of it. People just assume the media will alert them when there is a serious problem. According to them, the problem comes from the racists who complain about the evil traitor in the Whitehouse.

        We've silenced a lot of leftist fools who normally troll here, but I know those voices are still running through their heads with little change from the insane claims they are used to making. It's actually useful to be reminded just how delusional they are. I miss them some times, because I know they're still out there but now it's more difficult to get in their faces about this BS they got us in to.

        • JacksonPearson

          Silencing trolls is no problem, but getting to facts on Obama have been tooth pulling.

          Seriously, what's troubling, is the massive, and mean massive cover up on Barack H. Obama's past by the MSM, congress, and our courts….e.g., why a legal body like congress refuse to call him out to prove his legitimacy, and our supposedly independent federal courts that have made every excuse and then some to not allow discovery, and dismiss case after case is mind boggling. Why hundreds are doing jail time, while he's being given angelic, God like treatment is even more scary to our whole system of government.

        There again I am baffled. Surely, people in the media have children? Surely they wish for a strong and prosperous country to leave to their children? How can they not be interested in the destruction of all that we are and all that we believe in?

        I can understand those on the receiving end of welfare and freebies not wanting to look at the big picture, but the media types are supposedly "worldly" and they can not see what is happening? Are they afraid of something?

      The allure is 'free stuff' and a pat on the head telling you you're entitled.

    The nerve of Obama. Wanting to help the hungry both in the US and around the world.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      … by taking food out of the mouths of Americans

      "The nerve of Obama. Wanting to help the hungry both in the US and around the world."

      We don't need the federal government to do that most of the time if ever. The federal government has killed volunteerism to a huge degree. Nearly every leftist looks to the wasteful fed to do it now.

      If 0'Bama wants to feed people around the world, he ought to start by pulling it out of his wallet and then perhaps using a press release to inspire volunteerism. That's what leaders did in the West, back when it was moral. Now every a-hole leftist political leader wants to coerce volunteerism. See the conundrum?

    • Gabrielle

      Obama is allowing many of our seniors and many children go hungry in this country as he sends money from here to "help" foreigners?

      How about brother George? He is living in total poverty with no help from the president of the United States? I guess it is only appropriate "aid" when Obama takes it out of our pockets and leaves his own wallet closed?

    • G. Smith

      Obama is sending arms and money to promote Islamic fascism, not food for poor people.
      Islam does not feed its poor or treat women with respect. Islam relies on foreign aid workers (but many of them also get murdered, raped, etc.)

  • EarlyBird

    Yep!

  • Suzy000

    I know for a fact that since the reign of Obama started…the left is pitted against the right….the haves and have nots are at odds and last but not least…the big chasm of the races. It is a shame that Obama has divided this country but what is even worse is that we let him.
