University of Illinois
Operating Revenue: $97 million
Direct state or other government support: $0

Alabama
Operating Revenue: $130 million
Direct state or other government support: $0

California
Operating Revenue: $69 million
Direct state or other government support: $0

Cincinnati (cited in the report)
Operating Revenue: $41 million
Direct state or other government support: $0

Georgia
Operating Revenue: $90 million
Direct state or other government support: $0

Texas A&M: $82 million
Direct state or other government support: $0

As you can see there are $0 tax dollars going to "foreign scholarships". Other than Cincinnati, these schools didn't even have "direct institutional contribution". Even that is coming from mostly school endowment and tuitions. But to argue that that is your tax dollar is at work IS disingenuous.
Can you please provide a link?

I saw who Obama picked for basketball, but that was about it.
