I just read a February 14, 2005 Associated Press article that tells about the Bush administration leaving the normal practice of relying on the American farmer to supply food for our foreign aid programs. They plan on turning to overseas market to get the needed food. Of course this is due to the reduced farm prices abroad, the food aid dollars will go further this way. It will also eliminate the high cost of shipping American grown food. Andrew Natsios, administrator for the Agency for International Development said the new plan has encountered some resistance from domestic constituencies.

Under this new plan the foreign farmer will reap
the benefits of Americas generosity while the American farmer tries to figure out how to make ends meet.
I assume that the money that is saved by eliminating the high cost of American grown food will be going to a ship owner in the country the food is grown in. Don't forget by doing this we are also eliminating the high cost of getting American grown food from the farm to the processing plant and from there to the shipping ports. We will also be eliminating the high cost of labor in American food processing and packaging plants.

The new plan gives new meaning to outsourcing, under plans like this we now outsource foreign aid. I wonder, when the time comes that the United States needs foreign aid will any of the countries that benefit from this plan remember us?

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.
