Funding priorities questioned

By Andy and Lloyal Anderson


Dear Editor:

After 9/11 President Bush wisely froze $150 billion of Iran's money that was being held in our U.S. banks (yeah, we're surprised too). He did that because Iran has always been the biggest supporter of terrorism around the world. They give their money to any and every martyr they can find.

After Obama became president, he and John Kerry made absolutely the worst nuclear deal ever made in America's history. Then, they unfroze the $150 billion and happily, gave it all back to Iran. What did America get for this magnanimous gesture? A great big "raspberry" and it gets even better -- last week, Obama gave the Iranians $400 million in "cash," no less. Unbelievable. No one really knows why this money transfer took place. Some say hostages, others say something different.

Obama and his administration are giving away America's money like it grows on trees to the #1 terrorist country in the world. They hate our freedoms, they hate our people and both houses of our legislature are helping him to do it. The reason we find this so disgusting? This morning on the news, they are telling America's seniors that the Social Security Fund is going to fail sooner than the last date they gave us. How about that? Our government will give money away hand over fist to our enemies, but they won't return the multi-trillions that they have taken out of "our" Social Security Fund.

We've been told for over 60 years that they have been putting IOUs into this fund for the amounts that they have taken out. Isn't it about time the president and our legislature be made to repay these trillions of dollars back into this fund and put our Social Security back in the black?
