Sen. Rand Paul Says NO! To $38 Billion Military Aid To Israel

Sen. Rand Paul, who has a history of being skeptical about U.S. taxpayer funds going towards the Jewish state, has placed a hold on the U.S.-Israel Security Assistance Authorization Act of 2018, which provides Israel with $38 billion in military aid over the next decade. [S-2497]

This has caused backlash from organizations such as the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

“This bipartisan legislation authorizes full funding of security assistance to ensure Israel has the means to defend itself,” AIPAC posted on Facebook with a link to “urge Sen. Paul to stop blocking aid to Israel.”

Good.  The US needs to get out of the business of making war.    We should put that $38 Billion back into the pockets of the taxpayers where it can stimulate the economy.   Smiley

Maybe if we did that, people wouldn't hate us so much.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

He also opposes the matching aid to Egypt, right?

Or has Congress finally stopped that?
