Do they even know what is in this bill? Even for those of us who support aid to Ukraine, how much of our money is enough money? Is the money from this bill actually going to Ukraine or to a bunch of Liberal wish list items? Did all of these senators even read the entire bill before committing to spending $40 billion of our money because government spending fuels the inflation eating away at American wallets?
These were some of the questions I wondered after hearing about how the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives rammed through a so-called aid spending bill. Ukraine earlier this week. Montana Congressman Matt Rosendale (R-MT) rightly voted against the package, adding that it contained “will borrow an additional $40 billion to send overseas for questionable and unspecified purposes, including welfare entitlement programs, $54 million to the CDC, and nearly $1 billion for unspecified nongovernmental organizations.
Rosendale: “I’m disappointed that Congress still refuses to address the issues affecting Americans here at home. Last year, more than 100,000 Americans died from drug overdoses, the majority in cause of fentanyl from Mexico Since President Biden took office, DHS has verified that dozens of people on the terrorist watch list entered our country, and we have seen an invasion of more than 2.5 million illegal aliens on our southern border.
Meanwhile, Montana Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) was called out by Fox News host Tucker Carlson for saying he would likely vote for the $40 billion spending package. (Watch the video below)
After talking about the Republican senators who voted no and those who voted yes, he added this:
Tucker Carlson: Steve Daines from Montana too, I quote “Senator leans yes.” His office said they also told us that Daines believed the Russian oligarchs would somehow pay the 40 billion. Quote, “he wants Russia to cover the costs”. He wants to use the seized assets of the oligarchs to cover the costs. Alright Alright.
By the way, speaking of inflation and Ukraine etc… David Knobel had a great Tweet about inflation:
