Senator Chris Coons Complains The U.S. State Dept. Not Spending Enough Money
LINK


quote:

During a senate hearing today Democrat Senator Chris Coons complained to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that the U.S. State Department is: a.) not spending enough money, and b.) not spending fast enough; on foreign aid to third world countries.

Coons was citing the previous Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Joe Biden who said: “show me your budget and I’ll show you your priorities“. Secretary of State Tillerson took exception and explained how he looks at this differently. The Trump administration is not spending oriented, they are results oriented.

Tillerson: “The statement ‘show me your funding and I’ll show you your level of commitment,’ I do not agree with. Funding does not equal results. Show me your results, and I’ll tell you your commitment. What are the results, and then I’ll tell you what I need to deliver on those results. Giving me a pot of money and suggesting that confirms our success and commitment is just simply—I have to take exception to that, I’ve never had that experience.”

Lol. Welcome to the public sector, Rex.

If nothing else, it's a breath of fresh air to have some people in this admin who haven't been full-time politicians for their entire careers.

I'm sure the senator has no clue what Rex means by results. Since when do results matter?

Some 3rd world dictator who funded Coons for Senate is pissed he isnt getting the requisite kick-back
