In May 2022, Antony J. Blinken, the U.S. secretary of state, and Lloyd J. Austin III, the defense secretary, warned Congress they needed to rush on passing funding “to provide uninterrupted critical military support to our Ukrainian partners.”
However, Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky single-handedly delayed a bipartisan effort to give an additional $40 billion in aid to Ukraine, which Congress was attempting to speed through with a 368 to 57 vote.
Paul simply wanted the bill to include a provision requiring that an inspector general monitor the outrageous spending. Most of Congress, especially Democrats and RINOS, did not want that. After all, how would the kickbacks get back through donations from ACT BLUE and other Non-Government-Groups (NGOs) in time for mid-term campaigns and elections?
“My oath of office is to the U.S. Constitution, not to any foreign nation,” Paul said. “We cannot save Ukraine by dooming the U.S. economy.”
“Americans are feeling the pain, and Congress seems intent only on adding to that pain by shoveling more money out the door as fast as they can,” Paul noted.
Now the Biden Regime is asking for $14 billion for additional October and November Ukraine spending.
Months later, it is now more clear that over $85 billion in U.S. taxpayer’s funds have been distributed to military, political kickbacks and “humanitarian” causes.
🔹Ukraine now equals the entire military budget of Russia.
🔹The United States has to borrow that money from China to send it to Ukraine
🔹The cost is more than the U.S. spent during the first year of the U.S. conflict in Afghanistan. Congress authorized force and the president sent troops into that bloodshed. The same cannot be said of Ukraine.
🔹The amounts sent to Ukraine dwarfs the $6 million spent on cancer research annually.
🔹This is more than the amount the government collects in gas taxes each year to build roads and bridges.
🔹The amount sent exceeds the entire State Department budget.
🔹The amounts approved by Congress and the Senate exceeds the budget for the Department of Homeland Security and for the Department of Energy.
WHAT AMERICANS BELIEVE
Just last week, a YouGov/Stand Together poll found that most Americans are fed up with funding for Ukraine.
🔹Only 2% of Americans think Biden should prioritize Russia’s defeat in Ukraine.
🔹40% said Biden should prioritize lowering or eliminating inflation.
🔹 42% said the United States should be less militarily engaged in international conflict.
🔹Only 7% said the U.S. should be more engaged in military conflict abroad.
“The United States has provided more aid to Ukraine than nearly every other country combined, despite the limited American national interests at stake in the conflict,” Dan Caldwell, senior adviser at Concerned Veterans for America, said in a statement. “With so many pressing challenges at home and in other parts of the world, the American people clearly don’t want Uncle Sam to continue to play Uncle Sucker in Europe.”
🔹Zelensky’s parents recently bought an $8 million home is Israel.
