Your Letters: Foreign aid off-limits?

I have not heard any congressman or senator suggest that deficit savings could be achieved by drastically reducing the hundreds of millions of dollars overtly allocated to other countries -- many going to corrupt regimes.

I continually hear posturing remarks about cutting services i.e. Medicare, etc. to the citizens of the United States. Why is foreign aid off-limits? I would think that the elderly citizens of the United States would occupy a higher priority.

You might wish to call the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3l21 and ask your representative and senators why this is.
