(FreedomBeacon.com)- Volodymyr Zelensky, the president of Ukraine, spoke before Congress on Wednesday evening and pressed for increased funding from American taxpayers.
Zelensky will receive another $100 billion from the Uniparty, which consists of Senate Democrats and Republicans, in exchange for his war against Russia.
According to reports, Ukraine has already spent between $60 and $100 billion US dollars this year in the Russia-Ukraine war. Zelensky has intensified the conflict by ordering long-range missiles to strike Russia. Recently, Ukraine launched rockets into Poland last month and blamed Russia for it.
Zelensky put more demands on US taxpayers during his speech on Wednesday, but two Republicans, Matt Gaetz and Lauren Boebert refused to stand and applaud.
Reports show Boebert stated in a video that she would oppose sending any additional funds to Ukraine until a full audit of previously approved funds was conducted.
Rep. Warren Davidson (R-Ohio) declared before the speech that Zelensky shouldn’t be speaking from the House floor.
He stated that Congress should not escalate the conflict but try to contain it. That should be the primary goal. And this behavior implies that they approve of escalating the conflict. Davidson believes they ought to convey a different message.
According to political reporting, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), who was not in Washington, D.C., tweeted that he would not attend the speech of a Ukrainian lobbyist.
Zelensky’s speech, according to Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas), was more of the theater that the current outgoing Democratic leadership and the current Senate leadership have orchestrated. Without any debate, they tried to prop up the belief that 47 billion dollars, magically created out of thin air, could be sent to Ukraine.
Republican opposition to and skepticism toward funding for Ukraine are multifaceted. Some members have a strict “America First” or anti-war stance and reject all foreign aid. Others argue that the U.S.-Mexico border should receive more attention than economic and humanitarian aid, while still others favor increasing military assistance at the expense of both.
A bankrupt and weak America cannot help others.
