U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) made an appearance on Fox News today in which he defended foreign aid and the foreign aid to Pakistan in the COVID-19 relief bill. As we reported yesterday there seemed to be lots of “junk” in the bill including billions of dollars to other countries.
You can see a clip of his appearance below.

Graham cited the lack of women’s rights in Pakistan saying, “If your a young girl in Pakistan, life is pretty tough so we’re trying to make life better for women throughout the world.”
While yes women do lack equal rights in places like Pakistan this was supposed to be a COVID-19 relief bill for Americans, not for women in Pakistan and other countries to achieve equal rights. Many don’t understand how throwing money at a country will give women equal rights as well, or why it’s our job to do it.
There are over 10 million dollars that will be going to Pakistan for “gender programs” while Americans suffer the consequences of an ineffective government that serves their wealthy donors and not the American people. Most people will be getting $600 dollars and not $1,200 because the establishment wants to put foreign countries ahead of you.
It is bad enough to see Congress pass this bill but then go on national tv and try to defend $10,000,000 for “gender programs” in Pakistan and $700,000,000 for Sudan. That is just some of what is in this bill but there could be even more considering it has more than 5,500 pages in it and less than six hours to actually read the bill.
