Letter: Keep U.S. money domestic

Published: Wednesday, Oct. 17 2012 12:00 a.m. MDT

I was recently reading a local newspaper. On one page a headline reads: "Should the United States cut off foreign aid to Egypt?" As you turn to the next page, another headline reads: "To save Medicare, seniors ought to pay more."

Should we as a nation spend more to help other countries and require our mothers and fathers to pay more because the allotment went to foreign aid instead of helping our own families?

As I see it, dollar for dollar those other countries are not going to help us with our needs, such as Medicare.
