Shockingly though not surprisingly, simple bipartisan legislation in the House and Senate—that would bar the federal government from giving money and weapons to known terrorists—has virtually no support on Capitol Hill.
On the Senate side, Rand Paul (R-Ky.) put forward S. 532, which is the same legislation that Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) introduced in the House—the Stop Arming Terrorists Act (H.R. 608). Her bill was quietly referred to the House Committee on Intelligence back on Jan. 23, the day she introduced it. Sen. Paul’s bill was referred to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee March 6.
“For years, our government has been providing both direct and indirect support to . . . armed militant groups, who are working directly with or under the command of terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda and ISIS, all in their effort and fight to overthrow the Syrian government,” Rep. Gabbard stated in an interview earlier this year.
Let's see....WE pay 63% of our taxes to the military for wars, bombs, arming both sides, blowing shit up.......and we send weapons to BOTH or actually, ALL SIDES, including gangs in Mexico with Obama's "Fast and Furious", plus we have MORE than enough to bail out all the banks.......??? But when a politician actually does their jobs.....isn't this a breach of trust as well as a hot, steamy load?
Why and WHO are WE working for again???
