The American public has now grown accustomed to D.C. politicians throwing salt in their wounds at every turn.
As we all struggle financially amid a tremendously debilitating inflationary period, the Washington D.C. swamp decided it would be best for America to send another $40 billion in taxpayer aid to Ukraine.
This is yet another example of lawmakers working in the exact opposite interest of the United States and its people.
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 on 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 weekened 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.
Lord help us if our economy is to ever pull away from the very people hellbent on destroying it.
