Bill Cutting Off Aid to Palestinian Terrorists Sails Through House

The House on Tuesday overwhelmingly approved legislation that would cut off U.S. taxpayer aid to the de facto Palestinian government if it continues to aid terrorists.

With unanimous consent, the swift passage of the Taylor Force Act brings the United States one step closer to stripping American funding from the Palestinian Authority until it ends its "pay to slay" policy, which distributes $300 million to terrorists and their families annually. The legislation now heads to the Senate for a floor vote.

Arguably, the US should not have been paying any money to the terrorists for killing people, particularly our allies. But $300 million per year is surely too much.

How about some legislation that would cut off U.S. taxpayer aid to the US government if it continues to aid terrorists?
