I like it. But why Ireland and no other foreign aid? I think we should cut aid to every country that votes against us at the UN.

I agree, we need to take care of our own shit before we take care of other countries.

True . . . I am skeptical though. It will take much more than this to turn this economy around and bring us back to our former status in the world.

Our former status in the world, however is NOT what the progressive libs want. They want to take from Americans and "even the playing field" with the other countries, "spread the wealth around". You know, socialism.

It sounds good, but like the repel of the health care bill, it doesn't stand a chance of passing in the Democratic controlled Senate. Hopefully the Republican house is done passing bills to prove points and keep campaign promises, and will start doing things that might actually do some good.
