The U.S. Congress passed the final version of the United States-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act of 2012 via voice vote on July 17th and it was "presented to President" Obama for his signature on July 19th. One week later, Obama has yet to sign the bill, but the official White House website has posted it on their 'PENDING LEGISLATION' page and is accepting public comments. The only required information on the comment submission page is first and last name and an email address. There is also a phone number listed for the public to give comments to the White House: (202) 456-1111. Full information on the bill can be found by going to http://thomas.loc.gov/ and typing S.2165 in the search box. Click here to leave a comment on the legislation.

In addition to numerous monetary provisions, the bill will "expand cooperation between the United States and Israel in homeland security" and "offer the Air Force of Israel additional training and exercise opportunities in the United States". The bill extends loan guarantees totalling $9 billion dollars to Israel and pledges hundreds of millions of dollars in military equipment to the foreign power. It states "It is the policy of the United States to reaffirm our unwavering commitment to the security of the State of Israel as a Jewish state".

Republican Senator Johnny Isakson of Georgia, who introduced the bill along with Barbara Boxer on March 6 2012, stated "There should not be one scintilla of light between the positions of Republicans and Democrats on the issue of the security of Israel. I am proud to join my colleagues on both sides of the aisle, in both chambers, in reaffirming the United States' commitment to Israel through this critically important legislation." Isakson, a former realtor and Georgia state representative, became a Congressman in 1999 and a Senator in 2005.

The red-herring of Rand Paul's "proposed foreign aid cuts" 7/14/12
Yes, Paul proposed a very good bill to cut foreign aid in 2011, but the bill went nowhere. So that single attempt does not exonerate Paul from sticking to his purported position of no foreign aid in the future.
