Government help should start at home

info@islandpacket.comJanuary 10, 2013 

I agree with the previous letter "Now's good time to cut foreign aid." Shouldn't help start at home? Our government gives out the money to other countries as if we do not need it here. There are man-made and natural disasters all over the United States that should be addressed now, if not sooner.
