U.S. Should Give Egypt $150 Million in Economic Aid, Lugar Says

The U.S. should direct $150 million in economic aid to Egypt because the U.S. ally’s economy “is in the tank,” Senator Richard Lugar said today on CNN’s “State of the Union” program.

The Indiana Senator, top Republican on the Foreign Relations Committee, said the U.S. should concentrate on providing financial help to Egypt instead of providing advice on how to best build a democratic system.
