Paul Supports Restrictions On Foreign Aid
Kentucky’s junior senator wants to cut off foreign aid to countries that persecute Christians or harbor terrorists. Republican Rand Paul says his “Stand with Israel Act” would impose such conditions on the recipients of American assistance.
“Some will argue that foreign aid is a way to project American power. Well if it is, we ought to be projecting American values. We should project what America stands for. We shouldn’t be saying '...here’s some money, do with it what you will.’” –Sen. Rand Paul
Paul claims countries like Pakistan and the Sudan have prisoners on death row because of their religious beliefs, yet they continue to receive financial aid from the United States.
