DO YOU EVER THINK ABOUT NUMBERS? —- 18.104.22.168 — THEN ADD SOME ZEROS!!!
$134.90 U.S. wasted = 1 major prescription cost or 1 utility bill or 10-14 days of groceries.
$1,349.00 U.S. wasted = more than my monthly income.
$13,490.00 U.S. wasted = almost equal to my entire annual income.
$134,900.00 U.S. wasted = more than a new house and car.
$134,900,000 U.S. wasted = more than my entire lifetime living costs.
$134,900,000,000+ U.S. wasted = $134.9 Billion spent from our tax dollars for illegal aliens in America.
USAID — $27.2 billion (FY 2016) largest official aid agency in the world, and accounts for more than half of all U.S. foreign assistance ($27.2 X2 = $54,400,000,000 spent helping other nations.)
NATO (28 nations in NATO) — Each NATO nation is required to pay 2.0% of their annual Gross Domestic Product (GDP – which is a monetary measure of the market value of all final goods and services produced in a period of time).
The United States pays 3.36 percent of its GDP (around $664 billion) into NATO world defense protection. ONLY four of the other 27 nations contribute their required 2.0%: Greece (2.36 percent in 2016, amounting to $4.6 billion), Estonia (2.18 percent, $503 million), Britain (2.17 percent, $56.8 billion) and Poland (2.01 percent, $12.7 billion).
The United States defense budget is larger than the combined total of its NATO allies, but the bulk of that, perhaps 75 percent, is devoted to the defense of Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Afghanistan, Iraq other allies and partners in Asia and the Middle East and of course the continental United States.
MEXICO – In 2018, the U.S. government will give Mexico $87,660,000 in foreign aid. The largest segment, 56 percent, will go toward peace and security. The second largest segment will go toward democracy, human rights and governance. (NOTE: The security portion – is funding to help them – help the United States in protecting the USA-Mexico border.)
LOOKING AT THESE NUMBERS — $134.9 billion + $54.4 billion + $664 billion + 87.66 million = $853,387,660,000 annually spent outside of the United States. And there are more spending programs than these!!!
This is a lot of OUR TAXPAYER DOLLARS SPENT FOR OTHER NATIONS — that could provide homes for our homeless, better benefits for our veterans and senior citizens, better living conditions for our low to middle income families — even infrastructure to improve our highways, bridges, dams, etc. — BASICALLY, the United States of America is supporting the entire world — while our nation has its own needs NOT being eradicated???
