What?

WHAT? The government is so broke that layoffs will soon begin. In the same newscast, we will now give $60 million in aid to Syria.
Makes no effing sense at all.

Let's see . . . for $60 million less than $25 million would be borrowed.

Or to put it another way . . . . about 60 short to medium flights for Obama with AF-1, all a colossal waste. But each Obama flight only results in borrowing about $410K currently trying to drum up support for gun control.

I'd like to know why we pay these oil rich countries even one cent?

Couldn't they repay us with their black gold?

Because when it comes time to pay China back all that we have borrowed, we will have quite a few fingers to point to divert the attention.

The vast majority of government debt is owed to Americans, not the Chinese.
