The Democrats Don’t Want to Fund the Ukraine

If the Democrats wanted to fund the Ukraine, they would just agree to border security. They wouldn’t even actually have to enforce it (they haven’t so far).


A classified, high-stakes US Senate briefing on Ukraine has spiraled out of control, with some Republicans storming out of the meeting, fuming over Democrats’ perceived reluctance to cut a deal on aid to Kiev by making concessions on tighter immigration controls.

Tuesday’s closed-door meeting, which was attended by US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, and several other top US officials, was supposed to focus on a $111 billion security package backed by the Democrats. The measure included aid to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan, as well as addressing US border security.

The briefing got off to a rocky start, however, when Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, who was scheduled to participate online, failed to do so due to a “last-minute” snag.

According to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Republican leader Mitch McConnell attempted to “hijack” the agenda by asking a fellow party member to present the GOP’s proposals on border security instead of questioning Biden officials about Ukraine aid.

When the Democrats objected, one of the Republicans “was disrespectful and started screaming at one of the generals and challenging him to why they didn’t go to the border,” Schumer said.

When it finally came to Ukraine aid, some Republican lawmakers called the discussions a “waste of time,” claiming that Biden officials provided generic and repetitive answers. Several GOP members – including staunch supporters of Kiev – stormed out of the meeting.

The Democrats don’t want to send money to the Ukraine. They just want to act like they do. Same for McConnell.

They are Jewish and they want to save the resources for Israel, instead of dumping hundreds of billions more into a hopeless clusterfuck in Eastern Europe.
