Sequester & Austerity for Post America……Handouts for the terrorists!

US Secretary of State John Kerry has pledged $450m (£300m) to support Egypt’s faltering economy but warned Cairo that “more hard work” was needed.
Mr Kerry’s comments came after talks in the Egyptian capital with President Mohammed Morsi.
He also urged Mr Morsi to ensure that next month’s elections “are free, fair and transparent”.
The elections are being boycotted by the main opposition group, amid continuing mass protests.
The secular National Salvation Front (NSF) says electoral laws favour allies of President Morsi – a charge he denies.
Egypt remains sharply divided between Islamists and their liberal and secular opponents.
More than 70 people were killed in violence between security forces and protesters following the second anniversary of the revolution that ousted President Hosni Mubarak.
“It is clear that more hard work and compromise will be required to restore unity, political stability and economic health to Egypt,” Mr Kerry said after Sunday’s talks – on the second day of his visit to Egypt.
“In all my meetings, I conveyed a simple but serious message: the brave Egyptians who stood vigil in (Cairo’s) Tahrir Square did not risk their lives to see that opportunity for a brighter future squandered.
“The Egyptian people must come together to address their economic challenge,” Mr Kerry stressed.
He also said that Washington would now be providing the first $190m of the pledged $450m in budget support funds for Egypt.
Mr Kerry earlier urged the Egyptian government the government to reach a deal on $4.8bn IMF loan that could unlock more US funds.
Mr Morsi’s government agreed the loan in principle last November but it was later put on hold amid the continuing street protests.
John Kerry’s first overseas trip as secretary of state is taking him to 11 countries in Europe and the Middle East.
However, his departure from Cairo was delayed because hundreds of al-Ahly football supporters blocked the road to the airport demanding justice over last year’s football riot in Port Said in which 74 fans died.
