Urgent Action Alert: Senate Vote on Aid to Egypt
Wednesday morning, the Senate will vote on an amendment to the offered by Senator Paul to end foreign military assistance to Egypt in keeping with U.S. protocols regarding a nation that has experienced a coup d’état.
Instead of sending the money overseas, the money saved would be redirected to the “Bridges in Critical Corridors” fund in S.1243, the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development appropriations bill.
As Senator Paul’s stated,
“We tell other countries to follow the rule of law, yet our own Administration fails to do so. Sending money to Egypt under their current military coups is illegal. Instead of illegally sending that money overseas, we are better off spending that money at home.”
Please contact your senators Wednesday morning and urge them to support Amendment #1739 offered by Senator Paul.
