After a long and steadfast battle, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul finally gets his bill, which aims to cut foreign aid to Libya, Egypt and Pakistan, to the Senate floor for debate and vote.

The bill, S. 3576, “A bill to provide limitations on United States assistance, and for other purposes”, calls for a prohibition of U.S. aid funds to the governments of Egypt, Libya and Pakistan contingent upon the release to U.S. authorities the aggressors who attacked our embassy and consulate in Egypt and Libya, respectively, and the release of Dr. Shakil Afridi, currently held by the Pakistani government.

Senator Paul said, “In no way should the United States government be sending money to governments who are not our ally, who blatantly do not respect our country, and who work to compromise the safety of our allies and citizens abroad. I am pleased that the Senate leadership has listened to my pleas for an end to this and have agreed to debate and vote on this pressing issue.”

Paul threatened filibuster with Senate colleagues and Senate Democrat Leader Harry Reid via letters in recent weeks.
