The US shouldn't be giving foreign aid Why should we help other countries when our country isn't even in check. If we help other countries then we get allies but if we join one side then the other side will hate us. We can't win if we join the fight, its all just pointless. Get our country in check then it wouldn't be as bad but were so far in debt it is actually hurting us!The United States needs to be more concerned about themselves than other countries. When Katrina hit, no one came to help us, but when a turtle dies in the middle east we just want to give them money. The only problem is that we don't have ANY money to give. An estimated 20% of the United States's budget for each year is given away in foreign aid...And seeing as we are over budget every year by billions of dollars, i just believe its a better idea to keep the money where its needed. The U.S. should see to its own citizens before improving conditions in other countries. How can the United States offer financial aid to foreign countries when we have people here who cannot afford food, shelter or medical care? How can we condone these billions of dollars being given out while so many here struggle every day without help?
