When Comrade Obama talks about spreading the wealth around, he doesn’t just mean from those it belongs to to those it doesn’t within our borders. He means spreading it from America to foreign countries. After all, from the international collectivist point of view, all Americans are selfish members of the 1%. Consequently,
In fiscal 2008, the government spent a total of $11.427 billion in international assistance programs, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement. In fiscal 2011, according to the statement, it spent $20.599 billion — an increase of $9.172 billion, or 80 percent, from 2008.
Prior to President Obama taking office, international assistance spending had been trending down for three years, according to the Treasury.
But then came Hopey Change…
Since 2008, international assistance spending has increased each year. In fiscal 2009, it climbed to $14.827 billion. In fiscal 2010, it jumped to $20.038 billion. And, in fiscal 2011, it climbed again to $20.599 billion.
By the end of August, after the first eleven months of fiscal 2012, the federal government had already spent $20.058 on foreign aid in that fiscal year. That was well ahead of the $18.439 billion the federal government had spent on foreign aid through August of last year.
If you want to know why Obama would use the government to steal our money by the $billions and give it to often hostile regimes overseas, read Obama’s America, in which Dinesh D’Souza describes the kooky and malevolent anticolonial ideology that drives Obama’s foreign policy. To understand why he continues to throw around money that we simply do not have to spend even as the national debt threatens our economy with total collapse in the foreseeable future, refer to the Cloward-Piven strategy.
