Sen. Rand Paul loses effort to cut off aid to Egypt
WASHINGTON -- An effort by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) to cut off $1.5 billion in U.S. aid to Egypt failed on a vote of 86-13 in the Senate on Wednesday, indicating continued broad support for the argument that the United States will have more leverage over Egypt’s military government by keeping the cash flowing.
