Obama outsourcing U.S. taxpayer grant money: like $141,450 to China to study pig manure, and $400,000 to Indonesia for their "Breathe Easy" program. Should Obama be stopped from giving away money we don't have to his foreign buddies?

Obama lived in Indonesia for many years as the adopted son of a Muslim named Soetoro.

    That was his plan and that of his money-men from the beginning. It was all about bringing chaos to America and bringing her to her knees. He is like Osama bin Laden. Both men bought into their father's prejudices and attempted to fulfill the need to have revenge against those whom their fathers hated.

    First of all 2009 belonged to Spending Machine, There was a massive jump in spending. In 2008 Bush Spent 2.982 Trillion. In 2009 Obama spent 3.517.

    You are trying to charge Bush for Obama's spending.

    Bush was president in Jan 2001. His numbers ended Dec 31 2008 like all presidents before him.

    The only rational reason for outsourcing research is because it doesn't exist in the U.S. If it doesn't exist perhaps it should (assess). In pretty much all cases, the U.S. is not the world's piggy bank.

    In general, we should pull out of international organizations or only put in an equivalent amount to what other members are putting in. They're just using us and laughing at us for being so dumb.

    RobinPeta is misinformed and delusional, but he/she is also a total dunce to see what Obama is doing and even say fascally conservative in the same sentence with Obama. There hasn't been such a big spender in the White House ever, but it's all part of the socialist's plot to destroy America. His mother was a fruitcake Commie, whose parents were Commies, whose lover, pornographic photographer, and possible father of Obama was a card-carrying member of the Communist Party, and quite possibly a Soviet agent. When his step-father began to praise America, fruitcake mother sends Obama back to her parents so that his communism isn't corrupted by pro-American thoughts. Who in their right mind could possibly think that Obama isn't on a course to destroy America and the Constitution with THAT kind of background?

    $20 million in grants are small potatoes. And if these grants can benefit American people's health i am all for it. Grants like these are normal, even Bush did it.

    “While the EPA’s investment in international grants is comparatively small, these grants play an important role in protecting the health and environment of American citizens,” Hooks said in his testimony.

    “They support cooperation with other nations in reducing emissions of transboundary and global air pollutants affecting the United States, thereby increasing the nation’s environmental protection. They also serve broad foreign policy interests" he adds.

    I agree for the most part. Some research can't be done here. If the government were a company it would make sense to outsource where it is cheaper - which is why companies outsource. (Note: if the government outsources, there is little reason why people should complain that the government does.)

    What I'm saying is the government does have a duty to limit costs but... outsourcing is a special case. Keep U.S. taxpayer money in U.S. investments, unless you are pulling in foreign technology and research (so what you pull in makes you better in the long run).

    I think the problems are bigger and more complicated than just say "cut all the waste". If there is any waste it is the two wars bush started and the tax cuts for the rich.

    WOW ..
    how about all the ILLEGAL Actions that Obama has started ..
    (let's state for the record here .. the Congress Authorized/Appropriated funding for the War on Terror .. so it is .. ill-informed to use the 'fingers of blame' .. )

    Now there's always that propaganda talking point ..
    Tax the "Rich" ..
    Always curious indeed ..
    when you tax OUT of existence ..
    the ones who make the money .. reinvest in their businesses ..
    when you use and abuse them so that they are gone from the economy ..
    what HAPPENS then to all the hand-outs?

    (it is a fallacy indeed .. all those taxes that are increased? They are part and parcel of pass-alongs in the products/services generated and sold .. we, the consumers pay that in the terms of HIGHER Prices at the final marketplace .. and in terms of higher taxes when you combine all levels of taxes that we pay .. )
