David believes that America can no longer afford to operate as the world's police or piggy bank and that US taxpayer dollars primarily be spent on programs and projects that directly benefit the American people.
There is no empirical evidence showing that US foreign aid spending decreases global tensions and promotes peace.
There are far too many domestic issues that need to be addressed (infrastructure, healthcare, Social Security, border security, etc.) before our money should be sent overseas. In Washington, David would push for a complete reassessment of every dollar spent on foreign aid and push for drastic cuts.
