Rand PAC Presses on Foreign Aid

Senator Rand Paul's political action committee, Rand PAC, has launched a wave of ads against Democratic Senators.

Specifically, Paul's ad takes issues with Democrats who insist on giving taxpayers' money to regimes that want to kill us and destroy our way of life.

Good for Paul for not only doing his part to help Republicans attain a majority in the Senate, but for pressing for a reform to our foreign policy -- and budget -- that is long over-due.

The Daily Caller notes:
The first two targets are Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Sen. Bill Nelson in Florida. Ads in other battleground states may be forthcoming.

“While they tear down and burn the American flag in Egypt and shout ‘death to America,’” the narrator in the West Virginia spot intones, “Joe Manchin votes to provide U.S. taxpayer aid to Egypt.”
While Pakistan imprisons and tortures the hero who helped us get Osama bin Laden,” the ad continues, “Joe Manchin votes to send billions of our taxpayer dollars to Pakistan.”
“While radical Islamists burn our embassy and kill our ambassador in Libya, Joe Manchin votes to send more taxpayer money to Libya.”
