Personally I am sick of seeing my tax dollars being sent to Ukraine…..it is time for someone else to step up if Ukraine is all that damn important.
Ukraine just got the okay for billions more for their national budget….we are talking about cash sent to their bank account to be used for their budget…..
The US announced on Monday new massive aid packages for Ukraine, including $4.5 billion in direct budgetary aid and a $1 billion weapons package.
The $4.5 billion in budgetary aid is going to the Ukrainian government and is meant to pay for pensions, healthcare costs, and social welfare. The budgetary funds are being directed by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and will be sent in tranches, with the first sum of $3 billion being sent in August through the World Bank.
According to USAID, the new assistance will bring the total direct budgetary aid sent to the Ukrainian government by the US since Russia invaded to $8.5 billion. The massive amount of direct aid for the Ukrainian government comes despite Western concerns about corruption in Kyiv, which was previously used to argue against Ukraine joining NATO and the EU.
Since the war began the Ukrainian budget has gotten $8.5 billion infusion from the US!
Think about that for a goddamn minute!
$8.5 billion of taxpayer cash sent to Ukraine to help with the budgetary shortfall…..and the US has how much of a budgetary shortfall?
This is cash does not include the multi-billion dollar arms packages that we are steadily shoving up Ukraine’s ass.
Time for the cash to stay where it belongs….here in this country.
When will the American public wake-up to the fact cash needed in this nation is being wasted on other countries and the only people that will benefit are the corporations….and the oligarchs.
