Sorry, I misspoke when I said:

I think foreign aid is both an economic issue as well as an economic issue.


What I meant was I think foreign aid is both an economic issue as well as a national security issue. 

Economic - US spends billions of tax payer dollars per year on foreign while our national debt continues to rise. 

National Security - US uses aid to influence countries and meddle in their affairs. Often the money is used for military purposes rather than helping the people of that country. One need only look at Pakistan and Egypt to see how our aid is misused.
