Confused About Amerca's Financing

Life in America struggles with the knowledge that he has and the things that he hears but doesn't understand about what America does with its money. The deficit in America today is at a record $1.42 trillion dollars. That makes me and my children and grand children and great grandchildren all in debt. How can we get over that.

With that great deficit in mind, why oh why do we have headlines like this:

U.S. Aid to Egypt Totals $28 Billion in Three Decades

I am not sure how the math works because I am not sure how many zeros to put in each of those big numbers.   But if you take the $1.42 billion and divided that by $28 billion it appears that if we stopped spending the aid to Egypt that in just a few years the deficit would go away.

And that is just Egypt.  We do this to hundreds of countries that do not need it and who do not like America.  Fix that Mr. President.
