Yesterday, as many members of Congress urged the Obama White House to bring the American military back into Iraq to get the USA involved in the Iraqi civil war, one member of the U.S. House of Representatives urged restraint, saying, “Today, we are less than 4 percent of the world’s population, and we have a national debt of a mind-boggling $17.6 trillion. We simply cannot keep sending megabillions to corrupt governments all over the world. We should have trade and tourism with other countries, cultural and educational exchanges, and, of course, diplomatic relations; but the people in Iraq and Afghanistan are going to have to solve most of their problems themselves. We cannot do everything for them and still do what we should do for our own country and own people.”
Without going to the Congressional Record to check, can you guess the which U.S. Representative gave this short speech?
I’ll reveal the name of this politician tomorrow.
