Sadly it just looks like a delay. Isn't it interesting that all this money isn't allocated in some sort of accountable budget. Heard the $40 B could repair all the US roads and bridges, bet it could end student debt and solve the homeless problem too. But Noooo.

Ukraine is the grift machine of the dimwits. Money in the front door, and out the back, and into personal pockets. Wonder if Hunter will get his cushy job again?

I think that we are living in some kind of bizaroo world. I am agreeing with Rand Paul and my Rep. Matt Gaetz about the Ukraine.

$40 billion for Ukraine and nothing for the U.S.

Paul is a Putin puppet and a Russian agent according to the outrage shitlibs. They’re just surprised that Moscow Mitch is joining him. Shitlibs were once outraged by the McCarthy hearings, but now they’d happily turn in their friends and neighbors.

Like Caitlin said, I didn’t think I could despise them more than I did and yet daily they give me more cause.

Bernie along with the squid voted in favor of giving Ukraine $40 billion while nothing for Covid testing, jabs or treatment that lots of people can’t afford to pay for. $20 billion would end homelessness in America, but of course there’s no money for we the people.

But can't argue with his stance at all on the 40Bil to Ukraine. Means test the military! Maybe that should be my new chant thanks to you, QMS :).

I never thought I would ever agree with someone as "out there libertarian",
but war? Planet destruction?
I am all for it, Rand! Stop the funding that will kill every living thing on the planet! It is a sane position to take!
