Letter: It's insane when broke USA gives $190 million to Egypt

Comment on this story

An article in The Dispatch informed us that our new Secretary of State John Kerry presented the government of Egypt with a check for $190 million dollars.
I consider this an absolutely insane act of generosity for a country that is $17 trillion in debt, and is currently undergoing an internal financial disaster of major proportions.

Taking this all in, one begins to realize how hopeless our budgetary mess is, when our government is so completely unaware of its own stupidity.
