I am sure glad we in the United States now have a platform for change. Take for instance our newest contribution to the world the Global Poverty Act. Here is a better description for the bill. Basically Senator Joe Biden, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, was trying to rush Obama’s “Global Poverty Act” (S. 2433) through his committee without hearings. The legislation would commit the U.S. to spending 0.7 percent of gross national product on foreign aid, which amounts to a phenomenal 13-year total of $845 billion over and above what the U.S. already spends. It was scheduled for a Thursday vote but was moved up a day, to Wednesday, and rushed through by voice vote. If this holds true and passes I can't wait to pay out to the "world welfare fund" I wonder what else this wonderful bill will hold.
