Biden Requests Lawmakers Ram Through $37 Billion For Ukraine Before New Congress is Sworn In (Zelensky asked for $55 Billion)

BY RUSTY WEISS

NOVEMBER 16, 2022 AT 10:50AM

President Biden asked Congress for another $37 billion in emergency aid for the Ukraine war. The move comes less than two months before a new Congress is sworn in this January.

The request is part of a package to fund the government through the end of September 2023. The deadline for a deal to be reached is December 16th.

Office of Management and Budget Director Shalanda Young said in a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that the $37 billion would “ensure Ukraine has the funding, weapons, and support it needs to defend itself” in their war with Russia.

It includes a breakdown of $21.7 for the Department of Defense to be spent on “equipment for Ukraine” and “for continued military, intelligence and other defense support,” while another $14.5 billion would go to the State Department for “direct budget support to Ukraine” and “critical wartime investments.”

The deal would have to be pushed through prior to the swearing-in of the incoming 118th Congress, which will likely feature a House of Representatives with Republicans in the majority.

Biden wants more money, $37.7 billion, for Ukraine but still refuses to do anything for America’s border.

Biden is the best business partner the Cartels have ever had and doing an excellent job as VP under President Zelensky.

Biden Wants Over $37 Billion For Ukraine, Nearly $10 Billion to Fight COVID

In addition to the $37 billion for Ukraine, President Biden requested another $10 billion to prepare for a winter surge in Covid-19, along with an unspecified amount for disaster relief with an estimate expected “as soon as possible.”

$10 billion to fight a pandemic that he declared was over.

Does anybody remember when Congress insisted much smaller amounts, in the $3-$5 billion range was simply way too excessive to build a wall at the southern border?

Granted, the $37 billion for Ukraine is less than the amount requested by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Zelensky insisted Ukraine would need an additional $55 billion in aid to combat budget and infrastructure matters brought about by the Russian invasion.

“At this time, we have two key financial needs of the country,” he said. “That’s $38 billion to make up for the deficit of our budget for next year and other $17 billion that were verified by the World Bank and needed to rebuild the critical infrastructure.”

Today Biden and the war profiteers have asked for another $38 billion for financing war operations in Ukraine to defend its borders. Also in October a record quarter million illegal aliens invaded our country. Our border is undefended but we protect Ukraine’s border.

Biden’s request comes with a senior administration official telling reporters that all of the previous funding for Ukraine was never meant to last past “this calendar year.”

Zelensky just two months ago got a green light from Congress for an additional $12 billion in aid to his country, along with having the Senate pass a $40 billion aid package in May on top of a $14 billion package in March.

The $37 billion would bring the total aid from the United States to $103 billion.

Will Republicans Stop the Madness? If Republicans take control of the House, one could reasonably hope that they’d start focusing funding on America’s needs rather than Ukraine’s.

But with such a slim margin and a strong presence of GOP squishes in that same chamber, we doubt there will be enough to stop the blank checks from being written for Zelensky.

One of the few voices of opposition has been Representative Thomas Massie, a libertarian Republican from Kentucky, who is calling for an immediate halt to any further funding to Ukraine.

Massie is also seeking an audit of any monies that have already been delivered by the President and Congress.

We should immediately stop payments to Ukraine and begin a thorough audit of the $60 billion that Joe Biden and Congress have already sent there.

— Thomas Massie (@RepThomasMassie) November 14, 2022

Massie though is a rarity in the House.

NBC News reported last month that there were already ongoing discussions between lawmakers in both parties regarding a government funding bill during the lame-duck session following the election.

The report did not indicate which Republican lawmakers are on board with the idea and which are opposed.

But the funding negotiations, they wrote, were being pursued “amid concerns that a new Congress could take a more skeptical view of aid to Ukraine.”

House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy, who is in line to become speaker, has cautioned that the GOP would not support writing a ‘blank check’ for Ukraine if they win the majority.

Do you believe him?

I love Representative Thomas Massie, R Ky. Wish we had a couple hundred more just like him !!!

I also agree with his request for audits. They should also investigate the personal incomes of poopy pants Biden, and all who have voted for money to Ukraine.

I think they should abolish all foreign aid. I have long believed it is simply a way for congress critters & president to suck money from the US Treasury into their personal bank accounts !

The DeeCeeSwamp has become an absolutely unaccountable, influence-peddling, money- laundering operation. Nobody is held responsible for $Millions and $Billions of taxpayer money thrown around by the Federal Leviathan, which is very attractive to the unscrupulous lowlifes who go into"public service" to get rich.

Independent audits of every Federal department is the first step, then we are going to have to make very substantial cuts to ALL Federal budgets and personnel. It won't happen overnight, but WeThePeople must insist upon a devolution of power to the States, Localities and Individuals. That's how we Drain the Swamp, actually enforcing the 9th and 10th Amendments to the Constitution.

Happy Sunday...MUD
