    the 845b came from fuzzy math by AIM’s Cliff Kincade in some article/rant in Feb 2008 (his methods are for his calculation are unpublished). The rest of the blogosphere has republished this number unquestionly.

    the truth is that the GBO estimates that it will cost only 1 million dollars to implement.

    Mormons believe in Jesus as the Christ, so that makes them Christian even if they differ in some other ways from most “Christian” denominations. That many denominations refuse to acknowledge other denominations as “Christian” floors me. Far as I’m concerned, ALL organized religions are authoritarian, dogmatic nonsense, which has harmed humanity far more than it has ever helped.

    You need to seek professional help immediately! Someone has really screwed with what little mind you have because you have no knowledge whatsoever about Christians or just about any other religion. You comments are only applicable to radical religions like Islam.

    They’re right, at least about Mormons being Christian.

    First time I’ve ever responded to this type of forum…obviously you rattled my chain! Visited this site to determine verity/status of The Global Poverty Act. Then stumbled onto your over-generalization of Christians. In case you didn’t know, at the core of every religion is love for fellow man. Christians are human, so we strive for and many of us even accomplish this! It is quite unfair of you to heap us altogether as ineffective bigots (paraphrase). As a Christian, I accept other world religions. This is probably first/last time for me on this site. Consider yourself enlightened!

    In reply to the following post: Christians believe in Jesus Christ as SAVIOR. The ONLY path to salvation and thus to heaven. Mormons do not even believe that He is God, let alone Savior. So keep your misinformed opinions out of factual postings. Mormons are NOT Christians.

    Oh, right. I mean, people like Stalin and Mao, who rejected all religions and even quashed it, did not harm humanity a bit.

    It is not religion that has harmed people, it is people who have harmed people. And they’ve utilized whatever justification they wanted to do it. Until you learn something about Christianity, please refrain from commenting on it.

    Wait let’s not be so stereotypical. Many religions are all that you claim and some far worse indeed true religion and undefiled is very difficult to find. However it does exist. The fact that it does is ONE reason that folks have such a problem with others calling themselves Christians. The original definition for Christian is “like Christ” and those of us who still consider this the definition correct do not appreciate folks perverting the definition and then labeling themselves and thus us with there own “dogmatic nonsense” in the eyes of the world. However there are many more reasons why one religion would hate another using that word.

    Ok, enough with slamming Christians. I am a Christian. I listen to all view points. And yes, I can even change my position on an issue with truthful facts. And I do not go only with many Christians on many issues. We are people too! I believe you spew the words of a bigot!

    1 million a year is what the Congressional Budget Deptartment filed.
    I think a million a year could be better spent on poverty in our own country.
    Don’t dole it out without the receipient actually earning it.

    $1 Million? The proposed amount in the bill is $50,000,000,000 split between 8 countries, you think the US would only pay $1 Million??

    Thats less than the white house spends on gardening per year.

    Actually, it’s conceivable that it would be split between 7 countries if Russia is voted out of the G8.

    If the G8 remains intact, the amount that each country would pay each year(if it is shared equally) would be $3,125,000,000 (that’s Billion) dollars a year until the year 2010 in which the amount doubles to $50,000,000,000 which each nation would fork over 6.25 Billion.

    I do not see a date in which the payments are supposed to stop either. It’s possible that the amount could continue until enough of an uproar is made by voters about this.

    By the way, check out the sponsors and co-sponsors of the bill. If they are in your State, get the word out.

    If you believe this you will believe anything. Furthermore why should we continue to aid countries that don’t help their selves. Nor do we need the UN in our affairs.

    1 million wouldn’t even pay for passing the bill and printing the regulations. You can’t do anything in the US government for a million. Nancy Pelosi spends more than that on the 767 she demands for her personal use everytime she goes somewhere.

    By the way, I agree with ABNU; stop trying to pass bills designed to dip into the American citizens’ pocket. Further, if those in Congress (both branches)feel the need to give the world money, why not take it our of YOUR private reserves of money. Maybe even use some of your contributing lobbyists’ funds to cover the mega-billions this would take.

    If all those in Congress give to charity like our VP elect did last year we would have a world of starving and unclothed needy.

    We should cut off foreign aid completely until our economy is back on it’s feet.
