China Still Getting U.S. Development Aid!

A bipartisan group of senators is calling for an end to tens of millions of annual U.S. development aid to Communist China. They say that there are certainly more needy countries than the world's second-largest economy, which keeps trillions of dollars in foreign reserves.

The appeal to cut the aid came from eight Democrats and four Republicans to a Senate appropriations committee that must approve foreign aid funding. They urge an end to all development aid for China, which we might add, has a horrific human rights record.

Since 2001, the U.S. has provided more than $275 million in direct assistance to China for such diverse things as expanding Internet access and improving public transportation.

And we wonder why we have a budget deficit!
