Washington, DC: Americans are sacrificing their children’s future to build infrastructure in Pakistan, a senior Senator said on September 23.
With the Obama administration pumping in billions of dollars, does the people of Pakistan has even a modicum of appreciation of what America is doing for this South Asian country, Senator Jim Risch has asked.
“This government’s going to borrow 41 cents out of every dollar it spends this year. I mean, this is a real sacrifice Americans are making, and they’re sacrificing their children’s and grand children’s future in order to build infrastructure in Pakistan,” Senator Jim Rish said at a Congressional hearing.
“I’ve read the polling materials which really aren’t very encouraging, to say the least. Do they have even a modicum of understanding that what we’re doing for them, whether it be building bridges in the Swat Valley or what have you, that we’re encumbering our kids’ and our grandkids’ future, that we don’t have any money anymore,” Risch asked at the confirmation hearing of Munter.
