Four Republican U.S. lawmakers said on Tuesday they would seek to overturn parts of a $38 billion military aid agreement with Israel, setting up a showdown with President Barack Obama over the package days after it was signed.
Senators Lindsey Graham, Kelly Ayotte, John McCain and Ted Cruz told a news conference they wanted to add a measure giving Israel an additional $1.5 billion in military aid to a bill expected later this year to renew U.S. sanctions on Iran . . .
U.S. and Israeli officials signed the agreement on Wednesday. The 10-year, $38 billion package is the largest in U.S. history. It was reached after nearly 10 months of negotiations that underscored continuing friction between Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu.
Meanwhile, our roads look like they were imported from Iraq, and our bridges, dams, trains, public schools, electrical supply, and water supply crumble and decay and we can’t build a wall and defend our own southern border but we can send $38 Billion over to Israel and four U.S. Senators want to send an additional $1.5 Billion to buy more bombs and the Missile Command system. :shrug:
And I wouldn’t send $1.3 Billion in military assistance every year to Egypt either.
