More reasons to oppose the Democrats' IMF boondoggle

Here is some more information on the Democrats' decision to hold the troop funding bill hostage until they get enough votes to secure $108 billion to fund International Monetary Fund aid programs.

These points are alarming and they should give every American reason to tell Congress not to pursue IMF funding:

Because any IMF member country may apply for loans out of the $108 billion, Iran, Venezuela, Zimbabwe, and Burma are all eligible. Therefore, "state sponsors of terrorism" can receive American taxpayer money under the Democrats' proposal.

The New York Times reported on May 27, that Hezbollah is in talks with the IMF about continuing loans to Lebanon should they win the election. Therefore, a terrorist organization could receive American taxpayer dollars under the Democrats' proposal.
