• It would balance the budget.

    Yes, the United States should cut foreign aid, because it would be a good way to save money and balance the budget. The United States gives money to Egypt, which it can't constitutionally do any more, because Egypt is in the middle of a civil war. We also give money to Pakistan, which doesn't even make sense, because they do not agree with our interests.

  • Yes for now.

    The United States needs to stop helping other countries and focus on their own. Some of the countries do not even want our help so why are we forcing it on them? It will make us more likeable to those people and make us be able to focus on improving our living.

  • Yes, American people are more important.

    Yes, the United States should cut foreign aid, because it often does not help. The money spent on foreign aid could be used to help Americans who are in need, or refugees who are needy in this country. Or the politicians could give a tax cut to paying Americans, which would stimulate the U.S. economy. This would be a much better use of the money.

  • Take Care of Our Own Backyard First

    The United States government should take care of its own citizens first before caring about Israelis, Pakistanis, Indians, Japanese, etc. The United States should only give foreign aid to countries with natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis, droughts, etc. There are no guarantees the aid will get to the people who need it. Ideally, private aid groups should be helping foreign citizens and not the United States taxpayer.

  • They need you help!

    You have to Understand that United States in the one of the biggest and richest nations in the world. And if you have travelled enough before you would understand how much people in other countries are struggling. Even little aid does a great thing to other countries. How could you breath the same air with people who doesn't have anything, sleeping with empty stomach, yet you have billions of dollars in your pockets without helping them.? Think before you write!!

  • No, but defense should be cut.

    The United States should not be cutting aid to foreign countries, but it probably should be cutting defense of other countries when there is a skirmish. We are spending far too much on arms and far too little on the help that would make people's lives better and more healthy.
