Jimmy Carter Should Go Back to Building Houses

Jimmy Carter says, "The world deserves more handouts from the U.S."

The U.S. gives the most money in foreign aid, but that's not good enough. We need to satisfy Carter's preferred "per capita" calculus or else we're saying "fuck you" to the world.

The Netherlands and Canada can probably give more per capita than the U.S. because we've been busy spending money on other stuff. Stuff like a powerful military to bolster NATO, keeping the Netherlands and Canada safe for half a century. But I guess that's just the horrible, greedy capitalist in me talking again.
