      If approved, it would bring total US spending on the war in Ukraine to about $105 billion

      by Dave DeCamp

       

      The White House on Tuesday asked Congress to approve $37.7 billion in new aid for Ukraine, which would bring total US spending on the war to about $105 billion.

      According to The Hill, the request includes $21.7 billion in military aid for Ukraine and to replenish US military stockpiles that have been sent to the country.

      A total of $14.5 billion in budgetary aid to directly fund the Ukrainian government is included, as Kyiv is expecting the US and its allies to pay its budget deficit for 2023.

      The request also includes $626 million for the US Strategic Oil Reserve and for nuclear safety for Ukraine and $900 million for healthcare and other services for Ukrainians.

      Betcha dollars to donuts, this White House request get bumped up a cool $10 bill. Anybody here wanna bet against me? Must be fair and admit I really like donuts a whole lot.

      Then the article goes on to say the new Republican house will not be writing blank cheques, or some bullshit like that.

      It’s Joey’s war of choice brought to the people of Ukraine. The video says Dnepropetrovsk; it has the Ukrainian name of Dnipro. I’ve been there a few times; it was a nice city divided by the Dnieper River.

      And probably write Biden a sternly worded letter that $37.7 billion is only a half-measure, or something. /sarcasm

      But keep voting for members of the Democratic Party, folks.

      Kyiv is expecting the US and its allies to pay its budget deficit for 2023.

      And who is going to pay for our budget deficit for 2023?  So not only are we losing money we could use domestically, we also have to pay interest on the money we aren’t getting for our domestic needs.
