At least one principled America First politician. It's a fucking shame that mothers can't find baby formula but we're shuffling billions to corrupt governments.

Another 'bill' passed that nobody has read or is allowed to read. The Dems are stuffing their gills with laundered fiat money while they have a chance. Plunging the country into further Babylonian debt slavery is of no consequence to them. Increase the deficits ad infinitum while they plump up their offshore bank accounts and flee to their havens when the bombs start falling. The Lords of Chaos have made it so.

What does formula shortage have to do with billions? Spending $40B on baby formula won't bring more baby formula because FDA restricts imports and some US capacity went offline due to contamination. It's a PHYSICAL SHORTAGE, having nothing to do with money. And if FDA didn't restrict imports there would be plenty of baby formula to go around (imported from Europe, for example) without any need to spend $40B on it.

Some low-IQ cunt lumped these things together and all "conservatives" supposedly "thinking for themselves" are reposting this shit over and over again.

We should be spending $0 on it. It has everything to do with it. The nation is broke and it sends billions of printed money it doesn't have overseas. This causes inflation and shortages. Could have built plenty of manufacturing for all sorts of things in the US. Trumps border wall was like 1B and everybody faux outraged, we have sent around 100B to a corrupt govt already. Bupkis is want we should spend on this "war".

Look I don't care if you're for or against Zelenski or Putin, all thugs to me. Just don't spend our money on it. They should have used a go fund me for this

It's just an entirely sensible policy of wearing down Russia by wearing down our own economy and exhausting our arms depots with foreign venture giveaways. I love country destroying liberal logic.

It wouldn't be because they are sacrificing our nation to protect their criminal enterprises would it? Nahhhhhh.

It's about priorities. We send money to the Ukraine but can't put baby formula on the shelves.

It is called America First.

A 'laundry list' of where the money is going? LOL! Into select Congressional pockets near you.

Even by Washington standards, the Biden Administration’s recent request for $33 billion for military aid to Ukraine was shocking. Surely a coalition of antiwar progressives and budget-hawk Republicans would oppose the dangerous and expensive involvement of the US in the Russia/Ukraine conflict? No! Not only did Congress not object: they added nearly seven billion MORE dollars to the package!

In the end, not a single House Democrat voted against further US involvement in the war, and just 57 Republicans said “no” to funding yet another undeclared war.

On the Senate side, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) both demanded immediate passage of the huge giveaway to Ukraine. That’s Washington’s bipartisanship for you.

Then the junior Senator from Kentucky came to the Senate Floor and did the unthinkable in Washington: he delayed the vote.

“My oath of office is to the national security of the United States of America,” Sen. Rand Paul said. “We cannot save Ukraine by dooming the US economy.” He went on to point out that the US has spent nearly as much on Ukraine’s military as the entire military budget of Russia and that the US government has sent more military money to Ukraine than it spent in the entire first year of the US war in Afghanistan.

Sen. Paul put the package into perspective: this massive giveaway to Ukraine equals nearly the entire yearly budget of the US State Department and is larger than the budget of the Department of Homeland Security!

Schumer was furious with Paul, accusing him of “preventing swift passage of Ukraine aid because he wants to add at the last minute his own changes directly into the bill.”

What was he trying to add to the bill? In his own words, “All I requested is an amendment to be included in the final bill that allows for the Inspector General to oversee how funds are spent.”
