Home vs. Haiti
I don't want to seem cruel and I am not saying that we should not help Haiti. But, wouldn't the $100,000,000 that the president pledged to send Haiti, be better spent at home?
More and more US citizens are losing their jobs, their homes, and their ability to support their own families. When I looked at this map (from the Bureau of Labor Statistics), I was astounded by how much of the US had unemployment rates of 10% or higher from December '08 to November '09.
I could understand our government spending our tax dollars abroad if everything was hunky dory at home. But, it isn't.
