On March 1, President Obama signed the Sequester, a budget control act that dramatically affects our nation’s military. We are cutting our carrier force in the all-important Persian Gulf in half, and the Army is planning to cut tens of thousands of American soldiers.
Yet on March 4, Secretary of State John Kerry pledged $250 million in new American taxpayer aid to Egypt’s hostile Muslim Brotherhood-led government, and our government could soon send $1.5 billion more.
In a time of budget cutbacks, we are demanding that the Muslim Brotherhood face the first cuts – before our men and women in uniform.
To: President Obama, Secretary of State Kerry, and the U.S. Congress
American taxpayers should not fund Shariah dictatorships under any circumstances, much less when America’s military faces deep budget cuts. All U.S. funding to Egypt should be cut until the Sequester is ended and Egypt demonstrates through its actions – not just its words – that it is our ally, not our enemy.
