LETTER TO THE EDITOR:

We need to be taking care of our citizens first

Can anyone explain why the government cannot afford to extend benefits for Americans who had money deducted from their paychecks to pay for unemployment, but we have money to give to countries like Pakistan where they train terrorists to kill Americans?

Congress needs to stop trying to buy friendships under the guise of foreign aid with money we do not have. We are broke and need to take care of Americans first. America can no longer afford to give money away.
