The House voted this week to send Ukraine another $40 billion in aid. That is in addition to the $14 billion we have already sent to Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s embattled country.
The House voted 369-57 to pass the spending bill after President Biden urged lawmakers to give him the cash. All 57 “NO” votes came from Republicans. No Democrats opposed the bill.
The spending bill included $20 billion in weapons and security assistance for Ukraine, $6 billion for the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative, and $4 billion for the State Department’s Foreign Military Financing program.
Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., who opposed the measure tweeted, ““I oppose Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, but we can’t help Ukraine by spending money we don’t have.”
In the meantime, here at home, while Democrats pontificate about protecting Ukrainian borders, our own is going from neglected, to virtually nonexistent.
That $58 billion sent to Ukrainian oligarchs, whose kickbacks ensured an early retirement for President Biden’s untalented son Hunter, is more than all the money spent last year in the United States on our currently crumbling infrastructure.
There are Republicans who are completely on board with the aid package. One Democrat who is not is Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who in an impassioned speech on the House floor wondered why the Administration wants to feed Ukrainians, while American mothers are coping with a shortage of baby formula.
Watch Rep. Greene’s stem-winding speech and tell me you don’t agree with her…
