U.S. shouldn't add to deficit to pay foreign aid

Editor,

Egypt is holding an American citizen on trumped up charges. Since he is the son of our transportation secretary, there are talks of cutting Egypt's foreign aide. What? Why are we borrowing money to give Egypt in the first place? We American taxpayers don't work hard all day long every day to pay our taxes so that we can send money to Egypt or any other country for that matter. Are we not 15 trillion in debt? I can not believe that we cut our military and domestic programs such as school lunch aid and heat assistance funds for our poor while still sending Egypt billions. If they need money they can borrow it themselves. I am sick of it!
