WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States will spend $150 million to assist Egypt's democratic transformation after the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Thursday.
"It's very clear that there's a great deal of work ahead to ensure an orderly, democratic transition. It's also clear that Egypt will be grappling with immediate and long-term economic challenges," Clinton told reporters after briefing lawmakers on Capitol Hill.

Hmm couldn't we just demand that Mubarak give 1 billion of his own money to the country? He would still be filthy rich. Somethin stinks, we don't just "help" people unless we are getting something in return.

It never ceases to amaze me how easy it is to spend other people's money. 535 people seem to have no issues spending the money stolen from millions of their constituents while blowing smoke up their asses.
I guess if we allow it to happen, we deserve it to happen.
