Dear Senator Kennedy,Article 1, Section 9 of the U.S. Constitution states, No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law.
Despite this, Senator Barack Obama, has submitted S. 2433 The 'Global Poverty Act.' Obama's bill (S. 2433), seeks to commit U.S. taxpayers to spend 0.7% of our gross domestic product on foreign aide, which is $30 billion more than we're already paying in foreign aide. The submission of this bill, I allege, is high treason.
The Founders of this country fought the Revolutionary War to free the United States from the scourge of British taxation without representation.Amendment 5 states, No person shall be deprived of property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
Taking from one what hasn't been earned constitutes deprivation of property without due process of law.
Next time, please advise Congress to examine Constitutional law before submitting bills.
Susan Allen, M.Ed.
