The Senate voted to spit in our face this afternoon.
“The Senate voted 86-11 to pass a nearly $40 billion military and humanitarian aid package for Ukraine on Thursday and the bill now goes to President Biden to be signed into law. …
The 11 Republicans who voted “no” on the bill were Marsha Blackburn (Tenn.), John Boozman (Ark.), Mike Braun (Ind.), Mike Crapo (Idaho), Bill Hagerty (Tenn.), Josh Hawley (Mo.), Mike Lee (Utah), Cynthia Lummis (Wyo.), Roger Marshall (Kan.), Rand Paul (Ky.) and Tommy Tuberville (Ala.). …”
We’re not completely marginalized though.
Rand Paul held this up and found 10 other Republican senators to vote against it.
Every single Democrat in the Senate including Bernie Sanders voted to spend $40 billion dollars to finance the war in Ukraine.
Every single Democrat in the House also voted for it. 100% of Democrats in Congress support the proxy war with Russia in Ukraine. The GOP is at least divided over the issue and growing more so.
Note: Instead of whining about this, we will continue to oppose the war as it becomes more unpopular due to staggering energy prices and inflation. We should also try to elect more Republican senators and congressmen who share our views on foreign policy to increase the divide within the party.
