‘U.S. Foreign Assistance Must Remain Strong’ To Continue Progress In Health, Development

Roll Call: From Aid to Impact: Supporting U.S. Foreign Assistance
Reps. Ander Crenshaw (R-Fla.), Kay Granger (R-Texas), and Mike Quigley (D-Ill.)

“…Even with significant strains on the federal budget, [U.S.] foreign assistance must remain strong. The international affairs budget supports programs with low-cost interventions that generate high-impact results, saving lives in the fight against disease, poverty, and hunger. It also offers a small price for a big return, as the foreign aid budget only represents one percent of the federal budget. We must continue to financially support the United States’ foreign assistance programs, for it is a smart investment for our global stability and one we look forward to championing together in the 114th Congress” (1/6).
