Congressional “negotiators,” as they are called, have reached a preliminary agreement to send even more billions to Ukraine.
A procedural vote on $12 billion in new aid is planned for Tuesday in the Senate, and if ultimately approved, the total amount of funding for Ukraine would reach approximately $65 billion … and that’s just since May of this year.
In typical fashion, the proposed bill also would also fund unrelated issues including Afghan ally resettlement, winter heating assistance, aid for Jackson, Mississippi’s water crisis, and reauthorization of FDA user fees, according to Fox News.
This latest package of aid for Ukraine – just like the ones before it – comes amid record inflation in the U.S. and skyrocketing energy prices coupled with President Joe Biden’s dunderheaded decision to essentially deplete the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to tamp down gas prices.
When Elon Musk offered to buy Twitter for $44 billion in April, a large number of social media users screamed that with that money he could cure world hunger instead. Yet, here we are in the U.S. shoveling money into a protracted foreign war and giving it to a regime that many argue is as corrupt as any. Biden warned in January, “Let there be no doubt at all that if [Russian President Vladimir] Putin makes this choice, Russia will pay a heavy price.”
He got the “heavy price” part right, but it seems our kleptocrat president got the country wrong.
Twitter exploded as this latest round of funding was announced.
JUST IN – U.S. Congress reached a preliminary agreement to provide about $12 billion in new assistance to Ukraine.

$12 BILLION more to Ukraine? Uhh, we’re struggling over here, U.S. citizens. Our border is being invaded, food & energy prices are STILL out of control. Smh
.@GOPLeader what about the GOP’s “Commitment to America”? When does that start? How about now, before we vote for you?

“In a separate, but related authorization request, a US official said the Biden admin also planned to ask Congress for an additional $3.6 billion in Presidential Drawdown Authority, which allows the president to authorize the transfer of excess weapons from US stocks.”

Why not $100 million trillion billion? Or infinity dollars? Why stop at $12 billion at this point?

If governments are giving away money, inhabitants are taxed too much.

Not only does the money continue to flow, but in August – in what would otherwise be considered satire – the city of Miami proposed a gun buyback program in which all recovered firearms would be sent to Ukraine.
Our Guns Buyback Program continues Saturday, August 27, from 10:00 a.m. through 2:00 p.m. at Belafonte Tacolcy Center. All guns collected will be send to #Ukraine while we help to take guns off of our streets. #gunbuyback #safestreets pic.twitter.com/PLdPBIHJ3f

After all the billions Ukraine is getting from this government and you want to send them our guns now? 🤣😂🤣

So you don’t care about guns killing people as long as it’s “other people”. That’s not a great look. Who’s the idiot who came up with that?
