Global Poverty Act - have they all gone crazY?

Obama is trying to pass the Global Poverty Act thru Congress with little discussion. I believe we need to discuss this passionately. We need new Energy methods, we need to pay off a huge war bill, and we need better education for our children.But instead, he is more interested in helping out the United Nations poverty. I realize when we have a better economy we can help others, but right now we have more poverty in our backyard than normal. Gas prices is affecting most peoples pocket so is rising food bills.Social Security is getting pre-emptied, and Medicare is in bad shape. Why can he not focus on us? Hmmmm is this just one way of seeing into the future if he becomes president?
