I wish yall learned the deal more honestly, its not 40b we could use anymore really. Its straight up 95% already paid and in use by the us or reserved assets, you can ask urself do we really need that equipment after leaving afghanistan and having gear already in iraq, vs a nation destroying expensive russian shit and kicking its ass.

Why would anyone be against appointing an Inspector General to catalog and inventory such a large amount of money and lethal weapons? It's immoral to NOT have accounting oversight on this.

@Kameron Jones ohhh yes we did and no it was not. Rewriting a narrative are you? At 83 billion and now 40 billion what do you consider older? And how much of it is not usable in combat today? What was our savings on this gear and equipment that did not have to be re-contracted? Since I know for a fact it is quality gear and equipment (on both giveaways) you should go there fully armed and tell just one of them to pull the stuff off. I trust you are confident in the gear "you would wear to this discussion" to come back alivs? Let us hear some real insider info. on this. There has to be a line of BS you are relying upon with this or is your last name in line with the first Usay?...Uday. Tell me something...how does 2" manilla rope feel? How does the Tomahawk we gave you taste for breakfast? I know you have the straight scoop on this 123 billion. You just have too.

@Casper S. We didn't loose anything in Afghanistan most of that was older stuff the Afghanistan army had.
BlazinHot 6

@Casper S. I agree with you. But do take some solace in that the weapons we are giving Ukraine are from older stockpiles, and needed to be used or demolished at some point. We hadnt purchased a Javelin or a Stinger in almost 20 years, because neither had any use in our middle eastern conflicts.

Why aren't we asking "how are we going to pay for it?" We ask if any time we the people of the country ask for anything.
arc arcon
arc arcon 2 days ago
Heres a simple response, its already paid for. Its 40b not really in cash anymore just 40b in military equipment they wanna donate. Maybe some money is involved but barely if its arms. Majority would already have been funded by the massive us budget and people really think were handing over 40b in cash in a day, if we did our economy wouldnt be the best.

The international threat USA is dealing with and you only care about domestic, but if we let countries like Ukraine and Taiwan fall in hands of our enemies, that would damage USA immensely, Ukraine provides most wheat for the world, has tons of natural resources in black sea that Russia wants to take over which would mean if Russia has access to all of that, USA and Eruope will be even more dependant on Russians in future. Taiwan provides 92% of the world's semiconductor chips that US military uses as well (neither US or China have achieved this technology compared to Taiwan), Taiwan's economy is also very very important to US. If we lose access to Taiwan, then that would mean ALL OF OUR advanced military tech will be dependant on China. You have to be VERY simple headed to not understand the global threat America has been under, please stay away from geopolitics if you have zero comprehension of it. If America doesn't show support for their allies, then many of our current allies will open more ties with China and Russia in return giving them more power and cutting us off from international power.

I proudly quote Sen. Rand Paul, “My oath of office is to the U.S. Constitution, not to any foreign nation,” he said, adding, “We cannot save Ukraine by dooming the U.S. economy.” Rand Paul is simply honoring his taken oath as a United States Senator - can more?

Its a terrible position to be put into. Morally Americans feel they must aid Ukraine but at the same time. Why is it when its military funding its easily brought up and wanted. Yet when its for things that Americans need. Its an uphill battle in Washington. Politicians need to get their priorities straight.

@0:35 "We have a moral obligation to act swiftly." Then get out your own goddamn checkbook. You can't act morally with someone else's money. You do so by putting your money where you mouth is. After you donate from your own pocket then spend your time outside of work privately raising funds for the causes that you belief in. Moral obligations that are paid for with stolen or borrowed money is not moral. Nor is it moral to force someone to do what you think is right. His idea of morality is simply the ends justify the immoral means. If that is the case, Schummer, then how about the ends of saving this country for the long-term means that in the short-term to intermediate term government programs are cut as we work to spending no more than we take in, we simplify the tax code to a Fair Tax type program, and return the majority of what the federal government has take on as it role back to the states where it belongs.

Thank you..... "We The People" have needs that our tax dollars can fulfill! Our Veterans, Schools, Teachers, Seniors, Children, Disabled, Unemployed due to C19, those with hospital bills that are about to send them into bankruptcy for the same reason, Nurses, Minimum wage workers, Mortgage holders, Renters, Small businesses, Farmers, Truckers, Infrastructure...We have Billions to toss to others but seemingly nothing for ourselves. All we get is the responsibility of the repayment for the debts incurred at the behest of other countries, none of the benefits. .We're in an abusive relationship and masking the cuts, breaks, and bruises! If we borrow money from the bank the first thing they want to know is how we're going to spend it, and they want collateral!

@Ivet Laru I never believed that load of shite. I protested against it. I wrote to my Congressman multiple times. I still believe the US invasion of Iraq was about a personal issue with Saddam and Bush. Chaney made millions of dollars due to his connection with Haliburton. I believe reparations are due to the people of Iraq. We can not change what happened but we can do our best to ensure it doesn't happen again.

We also have a moral obligation to the American citizens of this country too. Can you imagine what $40 BILLION dollars could do to help people buy groceries, pay for gas, pay bills, and rent? It's great that we as a country want to help other countries and I can guarantee that the majority of people here think that way. We HAVE to take care of ourselves in order to take care of others.

He has a moral obligation to represent the people. We requested better military aid for Ukraine and we demanded no more delays! Hundreds of people collected signatures, mailed letters to the representatives, we pestered with phone calls. We did our job. We won a 100% vote. The people spoke. This should not have happened. How can the people exercise their power if the representatives refuse to listen to a 100% agreement? He disregarded what we decided. He chose to delay it one more week for a different agenda. During the delay, people will die unless they hold an emergency meeting and vote again. When the aid is packaged and shipped they will get a packing slip. Documentation is handled. He isn't throwing a blockade over concern of accountibility. He is another motivation. And It's a damn shame.

As someone who disagrees with Rand on a lot, I applaud him for being 'anti spending' on everything, unlike hypocrites Manchin who opposes spending on clean energy and societal support because it will 'make inflation worse' yet he supports huge military budgets and sending huge amounts of money to foreign countries. I mean, does Ukraine really need $40 billion? Russia is losing badly right now, and we already just sent Ukraine $13 billion not too long ago.

@Shimrra It actually is. You ever read the Budapest Memorandum? I did. Officially on paper, Crimea seceded from Ukraine and joined Russia. Therefore it’s no longer a part of Ukraine. Which is what was about to happen to the Donbas Region when their separatists manned Government buildings, they signed the Minsk accords and still shelling happened killing civilians. Ukraine was the last to pull out. 2) nobody knows where the money is going or who is in charge of it. You ever monitored a check book, and write down what the expenditures were for specifically? This ain’t stimulus for Ukraine. We’ve already fulfilled our obligation of providing support and security council. Read the agreement. 3)this IS a fix it yourself issue because literally you had a war go on from 2014-Present day with your own civillians. You were supposed to revise your constitution in accordance with the Minsk Accords. You didn’t, now you’re all mad because the Pro-Russian forces are helping. 4) this could have all be solved if Ukraine stopped trying to be fascist. Read it. Jan 26 2022 they had a meeting in Paris with Russia and USA, Germany, and France. They agreed to end the bloodshed Ukraine should stop trying to control its citizens in Crimea and Donbas and allow the reintegration to happen. Establishing new borders. Like a spoiled child, Ukraine pulled out of parliament and went home to cry. 5) if you know so much, I suggest you get off the news and put your nose in a book and read to what’s being said. Either that or you have the comprehension skills of a walnut.

@DirtyDave *_"do you know where the money is going? Does anybody? No."_* Yes, we do. Read the damn bill. It isn't that hard. You are arguing from ignorance. *_"Also, read the difference between an agreement and a treaty."_* Irrelevant. Russia is violating a binding international agreement. *_"Stop thinking with your morals"_* You heard it here first, folks. Stop thinking about morals. *_"and think about what’s good for you because if Ukraine wanted to stop this war all it could’ve said was “okay. We won’t join NATO, but we’re not joining Russia either”."_* Yes, surrender. Why didn't we think of that during WWII? Why didn't we just surrender to the Axis and save ourselves from further warfare? You are either a troll or you've seriously bought Putin's propaganda.

@DirtyDave *_"That’s a load of Bull"_* It isn't. *_"because we all know that with more support and spending thrown out there, the more the prices will rise here to make up the deficit."_* That isn't how the economy works. 5% of our defense budget won't have any impact on the overall market. *_"Not to mention, that the separatists literally didn’t want To be a part of Ukraine."_* Irrelevant. We are talking about a nation being invaded after having performed no hostile actions against the invading nation. *_"Look it up."_* I already know vastly more about this than you. *_"That’s not an issue we should support, that’s a “fix it yourself issue” which ISNT covered by the agreement YOURE all so fast to bring up."_* Erroneous conclusion from a false premise. *_"Russia only got involved recently so why have we been supporting a government since 2014."_* Because Russia invaded and annexed (stole) Crimea, a part of Ukraine, in 2014. It is quite ironic that you said "look it up" while failing to put even a modicum of effort into figuring out why 2014 is important.

I feel Ukraine's pain and my heart goes out them deeply but 40 billion is alot to give all at once yall are so fast to give 40 billion but give us the American people a hard time with relieve funds during the state of emergency covid pandemic it took weeks even months of fighting amongst each other to approve stimulus packages for assistance it wasn't fair at all but other countries besides the US can receive millions to billions in relieve funds with no problem ijs

ASK THE ?'s FOLKS ...what else IS IN the bill and who is paying for it (the US tax payers ea paycheck) The USA is lacking the ability to FEED its own American babies (major formula shortages) Heartbreakering what's happening in Ukraine which I well understand on a personal level. Why is our media turning against us citizens ? 😔

I feel like the same thing is going to happen to Vietnams capital. The U.S. gives up, then the capitalists take the rest.

"we can not save ukraine by dooming the US economy" these are the best words spoken by a republican I ever heard. "Always aid to the relief of your fellow man but not at the expense of your own" Inflation is out of control and people are being pushed into poverty. We need to wake up. After this year Im switching from Democrat to Independent and only vote for representatives that has our country first in mind. We are sending Billions already meanwhile we have and economy thats crumbling......invest in home first.

Finally someone thinking realistically.....keep American taxpayer dollars at home. America is facing a gas hike, food shortages, no baby formula, rent hike and being overwhelmed by millions of illegal immigrants with homelessness at an all time high. We need to think of ourselves......

Rand Paul is the only politician I know right now willing to save taxpayers' money by taking action. They're literally passing these bills like it was charities. Throwing money doesn't always solve problems.

So how is this "saving" taxpayer money, exactly? Do you know the GDP of the USA? I'd rather funnel my taxpayer's money into helping a country actively defend themselves from a massive threat, thanks. You and Paul deserve each other.
