While everyone was glued to the t.v. watching the Chile event and the healthcare debates HB1388 was passed.

It is as follows.

By executive order, President Obama has ordered the expenditure of 20.3 million in "migration assistance" to the Palestinian refugees and conflic victims" in Gaza.

It's not the the issue it was the way it was passed at night with no-one watching.
This should send all you conservative through the roof. it doesn't bother me except in the manner in which it was passed. But lets add a twist.."what if some of these people who will be living in America have ties to hamas"
does that send you under the bed in fear...

Booo! I don't care who it went to. Giving out money to others like this gets me riled up.

also- I give this thread 10 more minutes before it's stripped down the same old middle-east argumentative bs.

So lets get this straight. America arms and funds Israel who in turn uses that to use/buy bombs to flatten gaza and maim civilians left right and center. The international community is appalled at such actions so then takes it to the UN where America veto's any actions by them allowing the Israeli government to continue bombing gaza for a few more days/weeks until their blood lust is satisfied . And then the American government sends money to gaza? Anyone else see the problem here?

I know a McCain/Palin administration wouldn't have done this.

I couldn't resist.... sorry.

This passage is just ANOTHER example of what the USA got w/ Obama.

He will single handily bring down the Democratic Party at this rate.

Crap! I should have known better. Ill admit I read and replied without checking. Shame on me. Good catch ATS.

So much for everyone watching TV on the Chile event, and Healthcare. Somebody has been a naughty ATS person

HR 1388 is the “Edward Kennedy Serve America Act” which became Public Law 111-13 in April.

Hey, friend, you should put that link in your OP NOW.

I will be modifying my comment.

Sorry, I remembered this from awhile back and you should have included that link in the OP to disprove the earlier component of this.

So, this originally was proven (supposedly) to be a hoax, but really not.

Alright, I am feeling PRETTY STUPID RIGHT NOW!

Here are some links with more info-

another link

The Whitehouse Blog


Alright OP I will be changing my first comment to show that this is mostly a hoax.

Yes, money was allocated but the additional statements made in the OP are false.
