Obama Pledges $7 Billion to Upgrade Power in Africa

Once again, US taxpayers are spending BILLIONS for US corpora-terrorists to PRETEND to build/upgrade power grids in another country! US taxpayers have spent BILLIONS to ‘build’ power grids in IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN — seemingly, EVERY COUNTRY ON EARTH — EXCEPT the US! US infrastructure is CRUMBLING, but Congress won’t appropriate a nickel to fix any of the THOUSANDS of unsafe bridges across America or, God forbid, give a air traffic controller overtime. The reason why the hypocritical Republicans in Congress (except for Rand Paul and a few others) have no objection to pouring billions into ‘upgrading’ infrastructure in other nations is that they know such projects will NEVER be completed (Iraq, Afghanistan) and the only BENEFACTORS to these pseudo-humanitarian (and ‘security’) projects are US CORPORA-TERRORISTS, immune from oversight. That’s why the GOP wants to spend $50 billion to ‘secure the border’ while simultaneously voting to cut food stamps and slash aid to the poor.

U.S. President Barack Obama pledged $7 billion Sunday to help combat frequent power blackouts in sub-Saharan Africa. Funds from the initiative, dubbed Power Africa, will be distributed over the next five years. Obama made the announcement during his trip to South Africa, the continent’s biggest economy. The program includes $1.5 billion from the U.S. Overseas Private Investment Corporation and $5 billion from the Export-Import Bank, the White House said. Sub-Saharan Africa will need more than $300 billion to achieve universal electricity access by 2030, it said.
