Why did the US government sponsor two Oregon state sentators to visiti Maldives?

The Oregon government that they’re running is at a 2.5 billion dollar deficit…and the federal government is worse off. So when the Under Secretary of State has already been here, along with countless diplomats from other countries, what possible excuse does the US government have to send them to a resort for two days on top of a few week long bender in south asia when they’re not even involved in the state department?

Answer #1

The Oregon treaty of 1846 made by the U.S. gov., I think puts the U.S. gov. in charge of certain payments.Its politics, somtimes doesn’t make sense.

Answer #4

Ok…I wasnt asking for facts but rather, WHY….do you think that’s a good use of your tax dollars? I certainly don’t.
