What is there to be gained from this action? We are (for now) a global superpower. It makes no sense that we would relinquish our seat at the table for negotiating aid, peace, and global policy. I can't believe that the people who started this bill were elected. I refuse to believe that the citizens of their delegations are as closed-minded about how our country can continue to survive and flourish. Are they trying to build an inescapable / impenetrable dome around the US? Who's going to pay for that?
