1997 Ron Paul 51:1
Mr. PAUL. Mr. Chairman, will the gentleman yield?

1997 Ron Paul 51:2
Mr. SMITH of New Jersey. I yield to the gentleman from Texas.

1997 Ron Paul 51:3
Mr. PAUL. Mr. Chairman, the gentleman mentioned the UNICEF program, $100 million. It is well motivated and I think the intentions are very good, and my colleague does admit that sometimes the consequences are not exactly what we want. But the question is, do we have this authority to take money from poor people in this country and make these attempts to do these social programs overseas. I do not see the authority, and I do not think the programs work that well.

1997 Ron Paul 51:4
The gentleman mentioned fighting the Persian Gulf war. We were serving oil interests there. I mean we went in there for that, oil interests. They said it was our oil, it was not our oil. But now, who is paying the cost? Thousands, 34,000, 40,000, 50,000 Americans now suffer from gulf war syndrome. So I would say there is a much higher cost than anybody realizes and we cannot ignore that.
