US House Blocks Obama Administration’s Plan to Send $450 Million to Egypt

The Obama Administration wants to transfer some $450 million to the Egyptian Government led by Muslim Brotherhood supported President Mohammed Morsi.

The U.S. House said wait a minute !!!


WASHINGTON (TheBlaze/AP) — The Obama administration’s plan to transfer $450 million in cash to Egypt hit a roadblock Friday as a top House committee chairwoman blocked the move, saying it warrants further review.

Rep. Kay Granger, R-Texas, said the State Department had notified Congress of plans to move the money to the new government of President Mohammed Morsi as Cairo struggles economically. The money is part of the nearly $1 billion in debt relief that President Barack Obama had promised the Muslim Brotherhood-controlled Egypt earlier this year.

“This proposal comes to Congress at a point when the U.S.-Egypt relationship has never been under more scrutiny, and rightly so,” the chairwoman of the Appropriations subcommittee on foreign operations said in a statement. “I am not convinced of the urgent need for this assistance and I cannot support it at this time. … I have placed a hold on these funds.”.........


What advantages / disadvantages does Obama have here ?

Hold the phone....

Let's think about this !!!

now the o-team is going to have to let key opponents in on whatever racket/scam/agenda they're pulling.

its so obvious that they plan to call egypt an enemy in the near future.

america has always sent money to egypt since howard carter...isrealis hope egypt stick to the agreement, but here we have certain americans not wanting to....weird.

securing the canal and providing security for isreal in the sinai is what the money is used for...bearing in mind america send isreal much much more....what is that money for?

peace

lol we're broke dude, or didn't you get the memo? we cannot even afford to fix our own country how do you think we can afford to fix yours? the money faucet is running low and this will only get worse so i don't think Egypt will not be alone in receiving less obama funny money this year.

Damn politicians need to worry about cleaning our own house before giving charity to those that dont bleed for this soil.

quit throwing money to other countries... spread that money between the lower classes. (the poor WORKING classes)

Wow!!! Are the tides changing? Did the House members eat their Wheaties this morning? Did they all get some last night? I am dumbfounded by their intelligence when confronted with such matters. Heck, I might go and buy a lottery ticket just for the good thinking and fortune... I might just win! Besides, couldn't the American people put these kind of funds to good use? Just asking...

Inexplicably, the administration’s announced aid proposal came two days after Morsi read the U.S. the riot act in his remarks at U.N. General Assembly. In his speech, Morsi defended a ban on free speech when it comes to insults against Islam. “Egypt respects freedom of expression,” he said, but “not a freedom of expression that targets a specific religion or a specific culture.”


This guy is already off to a wonderful start.. right? He's the perfect guy to give $450 million to.

Good on the guy who blocked it!

I personally think giving out money to other countries is ridiculous unless they are in a humanitarian need and it is for humanitarian supplies.

kudos to the lady of the House with the kahunas to put one foot down and delay ... delay ... delay

i still don't see the need for the $billion promised and we certainly cannot afford it anyway.
Morsi has no intention on cooperating with the US so why should we cooperate with him ?

I think that should really be blocked since it can trigger war.

I Know but it was worth the try.


They just secretly passed a bil that makes the US president personally conduct a review of israels military level compared to any possible threat once a year and provide whatever money or equipment is required to maintain israels military advantage over it's perceived threats. As a side note this has no limit on the amount of money that the USA has to pay to fulfill this review.
I also find it strange that it forces the president of the USA to personally carry out the review or face consequences. That is really rubbing the US's nose in it.

Mohammed Morsi, The Muslim Brotherhood and Egypt can all go get bent as far as I am concerned. We are in a National crisis financially and Americans are suffering more and more everyday. I support this move and I also support halting any and all foreign financial aid until we balance our budget. Then and only then should Congress even put to task helping other Nations and only Nations that share our exact same values. Nothing more and nothing less than equal to our own.

I am not scared to say that I don't give a crap about Egypt or it's problems and people. What I care about is my Country and my people. Congress needs to grow a bloody pair and start doing these things consistently.

I love seeing the Executive Branch get a what for from the Legislative branch like this.
