Newly Passed Omnibus Bill Brings US Taxpayer Dollars to Ukraine to Over $110 Billion in Just One Year
On December 22, 2022, the United States Senate passed a $1.7 trillion spending bill, which means that American taxpayers have had to fork over more than $110 billion in aid to Ukraine in less than one year.
Earlier in 2022, Congress approved $66 billion in aid to Ukraine. The additional $45 billion featured in the omnibus bill would make that figure total out to $111 billion.
According to Kristina Wong of Breitbart News, this figure “would exceed by tens of billions the estimated average the U.S. spent per year on a full-scale war in Afghanistan, which had more than a hundred thousand U.S. troops deployed to the country at one point.”
The Biden administration has promised to support Ukraine for “as long as it takes.”
The $45 billion in Ukraine aid contained in the omnibus spending bill is actually higher than the $37 billion requested by the Biden regime.
During a press conference on December 20, McConnell stated that the “number one priority” for Republicans is to send more aid to Ukraine.
“Providing assistance for Ukrainians to defeat the Russians is the number one priority for the United States right now according to most Republicans. That’s sort of how we see the challenges confronting the country at the moment,” he proclaimed.
In passing this omnibus bill, the Senate was able to keep the government funded through the upcoming fiscal year. On top of that, it was able to prevent the government from shutting down prior to Christmas.
The upper house voted 68-29 to pass the omnibus bill, with 18 Republicans joining Democrats to keep the government running through September 30, 2023.
Undeniably, DC is host to a pro-interventionist uniparty that wants to remake the world in America’s dysfunctional image. Only America First nationalists can end this fiscally profligate insanity that privileges foreign nations at the expense of Heritage Americans.
