[ Editors Note:  Dear Folks, another right on the money interview with Allen regarding our compromised Congress. We face a big problem not having any standards of ethics and conduct that citizens can impose directly as Congress has a firewall built to block that, and for a very good reason…Jim W. Dean ]

US politicians are not willing to get a clear picture of Americans’ priorities because multimillionaires in US Congress are funded by pro-Israeli lobbies like the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), says Allen Roland, an American online columnist.
As the US government ran a deficit of $680 billion in the financial year that ended last month, the House of Representatives Armed Services Committee has proposed a nearly half a billion dollar increase in military aid to Israel in order to fund Israel’s development of two missile systems and to finance the purchase of extra batteries for 2014.
The proposed aid is in addition to the $3.1 billion in military assistance that Washington provides to the regime annually.
The proposal comes as the US government has recently cut $5 billion from its food assistance program, forcing nearly 48 million Americans to cut back on their food purchases.

“The economy is still in the doldrums and the American people are suffering and the majority of the American people are living very, very close to poverty,” Roland said.

As the American people are “starting to get their priorities right,” US officials appear not to be “getting the same picture,” Roland added. “And the main reason is because the Congress is composed of multimillionaires who are quite honestly … funded by AIPAC.”

“American people’s priority is that ‘we want to come out of this economic malaise that we’re in right now,’” Roland noted. But the US government “has its own agenda, this is why we have things like this aid to Israel,” he added.

The disconnection between the American people and the US government, he pointed out, “is setting the stage for a social revolution.”
