AP Lauds Obama's Fight against Poverty, Ignores his Global Tax Proposal

AP claims Obama has been there.

(AP)..."The Super Tuesday campaign kicks off in Indonesia, where Obama lived with his mother from the age of 6 until 10, experiencing the harsh realities of Third World poverty and disease, together with rich religious and cultural lessons."

AP reports Obama's tough words against poverty

(AP)..."The divisions, the stereotypes, the scape-goating, the ease with which we blame the plight of ourselves on others, all of that distracts us from the common challenges we face: war and poverty; inequality and injustice," Obama said.

The legislation would commit the U.S. to spending 0.7 percent of gross national product on foreign aid, which amounts to a phenomenal 13-year total of $845 billion over and above what the U.S. already spends.
The bill, which is item number four on the committee's business meeting agenda, passed the House by a voice vote last year because most members didn't realize what was in it. Congressional sponsors have been careful not to calculate the amount of foreign aid spending that it would require. According to the website of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, no hearings have been held on the Obama bill in that body...
