In the cover of night, the House of Representatives voted to pass a $40 Billion dollar aid package to Ukraine. For context, remember how hard it was for this same House to cut a measly relief check for hard-working Americans? And just like that, with very little opposition, they just decided to give away $40 Billion dollars.
This is what Politico had to say about what took place.
The House passed a nearly $40 billion package for Ukraine late Tuesday, sending the bill to the Senate as lawmakers heed President Joe Biden’s warning that U.S. cash to help the allied country will run out in just over a week.
It looks like this is going to sail through the Senate also.
Congressional Democratic leaders reached a bicameral accord to send $39.8 billion to Ukraine to bolster its monthslong battle against a brutal Russian assault.
And that deal is now expected to move swiftly to President Joe Biden’s desk after Democrats agreed to drop another one of their top priorities — billions of dollars in pandemic aid that has stalled on the Hill. The Ukraine aid could come to the House floor for a vote as soon as Tuesday, according to a person familiar with the discussions who spoke candidly on condition of anonymity.
The part that is angering most Americans is the total lack of regard our politicians are having for our own people. Food banks have seen an increase in demand of nearly 39% in just the last few months. Yet, Nancy and the band of misfits decided to add an additional few billion dollars to the package for food in Ukraine.
Under the Ukraine aid plan, the nearly $40 billion total goes beyond Biden’s request for $33 billion, a sum that was already expected to be transformative for both the Ukrainian military and NATO allies. The almost $40 billion total amounts to more than 5 percent of the United States’ entire national security budget of $782 billion, and lawmakers opted to include even more funding for military and humanitarian programs than Biden had originally requested.
If you read that paragraph in the article carefully, it’s clear that this is a money grab. Transformative for “NATO allies?” So Biden and Pelosi’s friends in the international community are going to get a cut? What equates to 5% of our entire national security budget is being allocated to a 10-week war.
The angering thing is that the majority of Republicans elected to the House were put there because they promised voters fiscal responsibility and to avoid foreign entanglements and unnecessary conflicts. And yet here we are.
House approves nearly $40 billion in aid for Ukraine.
The vote was 368-57.
All nay votes came from Republicans.
The bill now goes to the Senate. But the Senate may not vote on the plan until next week.

A whopping 154 Republicans voted for this bill! The potential payout for them must be astronomical. Or given their track record, it may not have taken that much for them to be willing to vote for this. The issue is not about supporting the Ukrainian people. However, you can support Ukraine without spending this amount of money with practically zero oversight on how it will be spent.
It’s important to keep our representatives accountable for their actions. Especially in an election year, we have the power to make changes. We can’t have these RINOs simply glide into another term of selling out this nation. We aren’t doxxing anybody. No one is suggesting you picket their house. We aren’t violent left-wing extremists after all.
However, hopefully, this list will help you when you get into that voting booth in November and one of these names pops up, you will make sure they know you don’t support behavior like this.
Below you will find pictures of the list of every Republican that voted yes to this insane bill.
