Rand Paul wants to stop aid to Libya & Egypt, spend money on veteran care instead
Rand Paul on Friday is demanding a vote to cut off aid to Libya, Egypt, and Pakistan. He’s arguing that the money would be better spent if we applied it to Veterans care until the criminals responsible for this week’s attacks are arrested.

“My position is not one penny more for Libya or Egypt or Pakistan until they act like our allies. Some say we’ve got to keep sending it. Fine. Let’s send it when they act like our allies. Let’s send it when they start behaving like civilized nations and come to their senses,” Paul said. “Let’s memorialize those people who sacrificed their lives and the veterans by saying we’re not going to give money to a country that disrespects and disavows everything we’ve done over the last 10 years to combat terrorism.”
