Letter to the Editor
Saturday, Jan. 25, 2014, 9:00 p.m.

I read The Associated Press news story “$2.4 billion in aid pledged for war-torn Syrians” , which says the U.S. government is going to give another $380 million in aid to Syria. What a crock.

Federal officials provide the very best health care for themselves but can't provide free health care to American citizens or take care of crumbling bridges and roads. But they can give millions to foreign countries, probably enriching the wealth there.
