Biden Wants Even More Aid to Ukraine

Joe Biden’s White House is asking Congress for even more money to send to Ukraine. Biden asked for $37.7 billion in aid on top of the $66 billion already approved in February. The requested aid will include $21.7 billion for equipment and military support, $14.5 billion to fund the country’s government and for humanitarian aid, $626 million for energy assistance, and $900 million for health care.

American Military News reports:

Congress is expected to consider the aid ahead of a Dec. 16 deadline to pass a bill funding the government, NPR reported.

This aid package would follow three prior packages approved by Congress that totaled $65.9 billion.

Three-quarters of the aid already approved by Congress has been spent or allocated, according to Office of Management and Budget Director Shalanda Young.

President Joe Biden has also used his “drawdown” authority to send more than $18.6 billion worth of equipment directly from Defense Department stockpiles. Another $400 million drawdown was approved last week.

Young said in the request letter, “We have provided significant assistance that has been critical to Ukraine’s success on the battlefield—and we cannot let that support run dry.”

The war with the Kremlin is a Western war. It is not even remotely a local war. The Poles, Baltic States and even the Euros have figured this out. Having abusmally failed to deter the war, the Biden administration has been dragged kicking and screaming by public opinion to support the defense of the West. Opposing Kremlin expansion is one of the few things the Biden administration has gotten part right.

Certainly not “anti-inflation” “stimulus”, border security, inflation, the “Great” green leap backward, crt, blm, esg, dei, and general alphabet wokey dokey gibberish.

And, yes, America is where woke should go to die.
