If The USA Is Going Broke, Why Does Obama Keep Giving Money To Other Countries?

Why is he doing this? Obama made an executive order which allows him to decide where the money goes. In fact he can overrule congress many times. Obama has used executive order 13566 for this.
Why isn't he using money to help people here instead of giving it to other countries? Is there a reason he wants other countries to have more mone

    What is really demeaning to me is that we can't drill in our own country yet BHO is giving billions of dollars of our money to other countries to do the exact same frigging thing! Loans and investments he calls them. Likely NEVER to be paid back. Ever.

    Is this a screwed up country and leadership or what?

    exact frigging loans investments calls paid screwed country leadership obama to drill in foreign countries

    sorry to disappoint but executive order 13566 is actually about cutting any trade transactions with Libya and certain property and trade rights associated with the country. he cannot overrule congress as the president has very little power over the legislative branch. the president does not give money to other countries as he does not have the power to do that. if you have a problem with money lending done by our government i suggest you talk to your local representative about it.

    Are all these responses from Republican's or just dumb people? USA has been giving money away since ww2. And they just want to blame Obama, were they giving less money away to other counties under Bush (both of them) Clinton, or any other President? They need a complete overhaul of the Government and put Americans first.

    Even if he didn't do a dumb move like this, we'd still be in the red. if we were just 'broke' that would be considered a good thing. The Government may provide jobs, but it isn't (shouldn't) be a business.

    People, our debt is in the TRILLIONS. That's not even an exaggeration; to blame one man, for the whole of our economic problems is amazingly stupid. If he were to only focus on getting the US out of debt, the fastest and mostreasonable amount of time people can come up is 10 years. the guy won't even BE in the White House that long.

    Good question. Why give Soros tax payer funded corporate welfare to drill in Brazil, and shut down all drilling here?

    I think the answer is obvious. He wants to tank this country by spending as much as he can in any way that he can.

    He has spent more than all Presidents combined already. I don't see the humor in BO destroying the nation I love. He said the buck stops with him but you are still saying its Bush's fault? Am I correct? Let me see If I am broke because my first wife spent all my money and put me into massive debt then its ok for my second wife to bury me some more? Gotta love the libtard logic.

    Aiding foreign countries is not a bad thing. The Marshal plan during the 1950's helped bring Europe back and prevented an economic collapse like that of the 1920's after WW1

    I always was a Marshall plan supporter but there is some contrarian thinking. Much of the money to France and Netherlands helped finance their wars in Indo-China and Indonesia. Poland, Bulgaria, Hungary, Czech. recovered to pre-war levels before France and they received no Marshall funds. Germany and Japan both did well will less money than others got. Greenspan credits Ludwig Erhard for European recovery.
