Why do Washington politicians insist on kneecapping the American public at every turn?
Isn’t it enough that we’re forced to deal with Biden’s tax hike, nationwide social unrest, skyrocketing consumer prices, foreign invaders on the US-Mexico border, lower wages, censorship, and a general feeling doom-and-gloom? Is it really necessary to spend billions upon billions of taxpayer dollars on a foreign war while Americans are gripped with financial strain due to Bidenflation?
Well, when you’re a career politician with a shady past and a growing need for a war-torn country to funnel money through – then yes – the American people will just have to suffer.
Just when there was a glimmer of hope that GOP Senators were understanding the importance of rejecting an additional $40 billion in inflationary spending, the Swamp Donkeys abandoned their principles and gave the money to Ukraine anyway.
On Monday, The U.S. Senate advanced a $40 billion Ukraine aid package with wide bipartisan support.
The aid package is expected to pass with flying colors and land on Joe Biden’s desk by the week’s end. Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
The bill’s advancement comes after Sen. Rand Paul blocked initial proceedings last week, stopping the package from passing via unanimous consent. Paul argued that massive federal spending, regardless of the purpose, during an inflationary period would cause undue harm to the American economy.
But that wasn’t enough to prevent the pigs in Washington from passing the bill anyway.
Only 11 GOP Senators voted against the $40 billion Ukraine aid package:
Sen. Marsha Blackburn (TN)
Sen. John Boozman (AR)
Sen. Mike Braun (IN)
Sen. Mike Crapo (ID)
Sen. Bill Hagerty (TN)
Sen. Josh Hawley (MO)
Sen. Mike Lee (UT)
Sen. Cynthia Lummis (WY)
Sen. Roger Marshall (KS)
Sen. Tommy Tuberville (AL)
Sen. Rand Paul (KY)
Over the weekend Sen. Mitch McConnell returned from a trip to Ukraine where he appeared as ready for war as ever, suggesting that Republicans who opposed the aid package were isolationists.
“There have always been isolationist voices in the Republican Party,” he said. “I think one of the lessons we learned in World War II is not standing up to aggression early is a huge mistake.”
The bill includes $6 billion in direct security funding, $4 billion in foreign military aid, and another $4.35 billion in humanitarian aid. This bill comes after Congress already approved $13 billion in aid last month.
