The House of Representatives voted Friday to spend $21.3 billion on foreign aid but cut money President Bush wanted for Iraq, Afghanistan and a program that rewards countries moving toward democracy and good government. Rep. Jim Kolbe, chairman of the foreign aid spending subcommittee, said he had to slice $2.4 billion from the president's request to free money for pressing needs at home. "I am proud of this bill, but I can also honestly say it has probably been the most difficult one I have put together," he said. The Bush administration said it has serious concerns that lawmakers did not provide enough money to meet its foreign policy and humanitarian goals.
