Ouch-Obama chooses the Jew hating Egyptian over American children

Kerry Announces $250 Million in U.S. Aid for Egypt
By MICHAEL R. GORDON

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — Secretary of State John Kerry announced Sunday that the United States would provide $250 million in assistance to Egypt after Egypt’s president promised to move ahead with negotiations with the International Monetary Fund over economic reforms.

In a statement issued after his two-hour meeting with President Mohamed Morsi, Mr. Kerry said the aid decision reflected Egypt’s “extreme needs” and Mr. Morsi’s assurance that Egypt would reach an agreement with the I.M.F. after more than a year of talks over a $4.8 billion loan package.

The statement issued by Mr. Kerry noted that he and Mr. Morsi had discussed the need to ensure the fairness of Egypt’s coming elections, but it did not mention any specific political commitments the Egyptian president had made to receive the aid.

Parliamentary elections are scheduled for April. Some opposition groups have said they will boycott the vote because of what they see as an effort by Mr. Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood movement to dominate Egyptian politics.

American officials say that Mr. Kerry asserted that moving ahead with difficult economic changes in Egypt would require a degree of political consensus and was implicitly a promise of some political change.

The aid announced Sunday consists of two parts. One is a $190 million infusion for Egypt’s budget intended to address what Mr. Kerry said was the country’s “extreme needs.” That assistance has already been approved by Congress.

Mr. Kerry also pledged $60 million for the creation of a fund to support small businesses, which will provide “direct support to key engines of democratic change in Egypt, including Egypt’s entrepreneurs and its young people.”

As an incentive for Mr. Morsi to conclude an agreement with the I.M.F., Mr. Kerry said that he would work with Congress to get additional funds approved for Egypt once a deal was reached.

In May 2011, President Obama pledged $1 billion to support Egypt’s democratic revolution. The $190 million in aid announced on Sunday is the first disbursement of that pledge.

“In all my meetings, I conveyed a simple but serious message: The brave Egyptians who stood vigil in Tahrir Square did not risk their lives to see that opportunity for a brighter future squandered,” Mr. Kerry said. “I encouraged President Morsi to implement the homegrown reforms that will help his country secure an I.M.F. agreement, put Egypt on the path to establishing a firm economic foundation and allow it to chart its own course. He agreed and said that he plans to move quickly to do so.”

The I.M.F. wants Egypt to carry out a number of economic policy changes, including raising taxes and cutting energy subsidies, and it is seeking assurances that Mr. Morsi can rally the political support needed for those changes.

Mr. Kerry’s departure from Cairo was briefly delayed, news agencies said, because hundreds of supporters of the soccer club Al Ahly, known as ultras, blocked the road to the airport in a protest related to a court case about a soccer riot in Port Said last year.

But the motorcade made it to the airport, and Mr. Kerry flew to Saudi Arabia, his seventh stop on his nine-nation trip.

I agree Congress can change the law, as the president has been loudly advocating for quite some time, but until they do its out of his hands.
Are you telling me the president couldn't use rescission to reclaim the unspent dollars to Egypt and ask congress to pass another budget authority to give it to the poor starving sick kids?

Snarky, yes, guilty as charged. Untrue, I don't think so.

The volunteers who run the white hut tours had to go, but there has been no need to forego the services of the White House calligrapher, who is paid $96,725 per year.

Yes. Its way outside the rescission window, not that it even matters.

Literally all he can do is ask for a new budget, which he's been flying around the country doing for the last year and a half. They are finally passing one this month, too.

It is out of his hands.

I don't think there is a rescission window. And as for money returned he could always ask for a bill to be introduced reallocating that money. It has nothing to do with a budget, as we haven't have one for almost 4 years.

I'm not sure there is a point in continuing this since you seem to be willfully ignorant. I really can't believe you want to keep defending your joke headline.

Yes, there is a rescission window. No, the president cannot unilaterally disobey the law. What you admit he can do is exactly what he has been doing.

As for the budget thing, you are just confusing partisan talking points with how our government is actually funded. If you are interested in learning more, I might be able to recommend a high school level textbook on intro to American government.

Well it's arbitrary. Whatever Dear Leader says. Today we're in a "recession window". A month before the election we were in a recovery.

It's really weird. But then again I'm not a moonbat so I wouldn't understand.
