Senator Rand Paul blocks a bloated $40bn aid package to Ukraine from passing through the Senate by requesting oversight on
Ukraine’s spending

Ukraine has consistently been ranked among the European continent’s most corrupt nations for years. Because of this, it is crucial that when we send them money, we know how that money is being spent. So when an aid package containing $40bn passes through the House with little opposition, and has bipartisan support in the Senate, only to be stopped by one brave Senator requesting oversight on how that money is to be spent by Ukraine, you know that for the Democrats and the RINOS it’s not about helping Ukraine at all. It’s about warmongering and virtue signaling.

Senator Rand Paul (KY) stopped the passing of a bloated, $40 billion aid package to Ukraine on Thursday by, essentially, asking how it is going to be spent. The Kentucky Senator stymied both Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer and minority leader Mitch McConnell both by refusing to pass the bill without an amendment to it which requires an inspector general to oversee the spending in Ukraine. Until this amendment is added, Paul will not pass the bill.

Senator Paul made the following objection in the Senate chamber as he explained his reasoning for refusing to allow this bill to pass.

“My oath of office is to the US Constitution, not to any foreign nation. And no matter how sympathetic the cause, my oath of office is to the national security of the United States of America. We cannot save Ukraine by dooming the U.S. economy.”

“This is the second spending bill for Ukraine in two months. And this bill is three times larger than the first,”

Many true conservatives and patriots are in agreement, praising Senator Paul for his words and actions in the Senate.

The Kentucky Senator’s objections to the bill are twofold: First, that we do not know how it will be spent–since we continue to throw money at a highly corrupt nation with no oversight. And second, that we must look after the American economy and the state of the American people first and foremost, and that any other nation’s well being must, by virtue of the oath of office all Senators take, come second. In his actions as they pertain to this bill, Paul has demonstrated a responsible and America First attitude. He is not shunning Ukraine, he is simply looking out for the interest of American citizens.
