Obama forces Americans to make sacrifices for Egypt

Obama is forcing painful cuts on Americans while sending an addition $450 million to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. What are Americans giving up to fund the Egyptians?

Still, it’s all taxpayer money. The $250 million amount — which in this case includes $190 million from a total of $450 million earmarked for Egypt — theoretically could go a long way toward defraying other sequester cuts.

But in taking a look through other federal sequester cuts, here’s what else $250 million could restore:

  • U.S. Marshals Service, salaries and expenses: $59 million
  • Food Safety and Inspection Service: $53 million
  • FEMA, salaries and expenses: $52 million
  • Federal Air Marshals: $49 million
  • Border Security Fencing, Infrastructure, and Technology (for Customs and Border Protection): $20 million
  • September 11th Victim Compensation (general fund): $16 million
  • Defense Nuclear Waste Disposal: $1 million

Here’s what $450 million could restore:

  • U.S. Secret Service: $84 million
  • Marshals Service, salaries and expenses: $59 million
  • Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service: $56 million
  • Food Safety and Inspection Service: $53 million
  • FEMA, salaries and expenses: $52 million
  • Federal Air Marshals: $49 million
  • Court Security: $25 million
  • Army, family housing construction: $24 million
  • Border Security Fencing, Infrastructure, and Technology (for Customs and Border Protection): $20 million
  • September 11th Victim Compensation (general fund): $16 million
  • CDC, World Trade Center Health Program Fund: $10 million
  • FEMA, Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program: $2 million
