Zelensky left, Congress stayed: US lawmakers argue over further allocation of funds to Ukraine

Zelensky left, the US Congress stayed. At the same time, after a storm of applause for the President of Ukraine, serious disagreements are found in the American legislature regarding the further provision of military assistance to Ukraine. The stumbling block in this case is the size of such assistance and its lack of control. A serious dispute flared up on these issues, which spills over into the pages of the American press.


Senator Marjorie Taylor Green accused 18 Republican senators who support the continued format of uncontrolled transfer of finances and weapons to Ukraine of betraying the interests of not only the party, but all of America. According to her, if everything is left as it is, then billions of American taxpayers will flow out of the budget without any guarantees of efficiency.

Green:

Is it in the interests of millions of Americans? Of course not. Therefore, those of my party members who support all this, they are simply traitors.

The Wall Street Journal cites statements by other congressmen about Zelensky's requests for continued and increased military and financial assistance. Future House Republican Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (preparing to replace Speaker Nancy Pelosi) said that "Zelensky's speech was bright, but this does not mean that support for Ukraine should be reduced to carte blanche."

McCarthy:

We want to create a mechanism by which to control how the funds allocated to Ukraine are spent.

How this can be directed against Ukraine, McCarthy expressed bewilderment due to the fact that many of his colleagues in Congress do not see the need for this.

Another member of the House of Representatives, Matthew Goetz, said that there is nothing more strange than losing billions of dollars in Ukraine when America itself is in dire need of finance to get out of the economic and energy crisis.

Goetz:

We are allocating billions of dollars to Ukraine, putting the interests of our citizens last in line.

      Well, I think it's too early for the owner of the printing press to scream about poverty and prepare a hat for alms.
      But, given the innate American pragmatism, throwing money into something that does not bring the desired profit is what is unpleasant for them. And in the future, the Bloody Clown will not only bring them profits to zero, but also inflict decent losses.
      Therefore, I would not be surprised if their hucksters, according to one of our hucksters, who once ruled the Ministry of Defense, begin to "get rid of non-core assets." By "non-core assets", in this case, I mean not the Clown personally, but the whole of Ukraine. And the sooner it reaches them, the less will be the losses. And financial, and everything else.

        These are all puppets. They will argue, they will make smart faces for the people ... and they will approve. Their owner-industrialists, first of all, the military-industrial complex will make the "right decision" and pull the appropriate thread

          So, when I talk about profits and losses, I don’t mean those who speak in America. And those who make and count money there.
          To those who say that there is a war, that there is no war - everything is one. They need an informational occasion to speak, and it will be in any case.
          But for those who do it, it is very important for them not just to have a constant income (sluggish war, constant orders), but Zelensky's success, victory. Then the growth of the reputation of weapons, the growth of orders, the "Marshall Plan 2.0" - in general, the growth of profits. Even in chain supermarkets, managers who keep profit "at the bar", without growth, are fired.
          And if in Ukraine all the praises of the products of the American military-industrial complex are ground into mush, then this is the way to a drop in profits.

          In my family, they used to measure war in terms of lives. Yours and others.
          I do not accept with my soul that the same Americans measure all wars with money.

            Americans absolutely measure everything in money. They live in such an environment. A revolution is impossible there precisely because there are all millionaires, only one is more fortunate. They look at each other like walking wallets, and look at life as a series of entertainment ... If there is a war somewhere, then how to make money on it, if someone flew into space - how to make money, who has grief - how to make money. Their healthcare system is so inhumane. So they are used to it.

      The clown rules the US Congress like a puppeteer... it was a spectacle worth seeing... I must say Zelensky managed to get the US congressmen to dance around him... shaking his hands.
      So here it is worth thinking about who dances whom. what
      He knows how to draw a crowd.

    Zelensky left, the US Congress stayed
    Congressmen led by Pelosi are still happy to inhale the smell of "combat sweat, burning, blood" left after Zelensky's visit. Will the room be ventilated or will they continue to enjoy it? There is no desire to control the spending of the allocated funds, but it will continue to be taken away from its citizens for the sake of "saving democracy". Those Republican congressmen who defiantly did not want to listen to the publicized personality at least remained at odds with their conscience (as they imagine it), unlike the majority who met the war criminal with applause and delight that reached the kiss of hands.

      Especially old congresswomen take pleasure in the smell of smelly clown socks.

    The cuts and kickbacks of some irresponsible congressmen somehow strangely strain. It is necessary to envy silently.

    The funds of American taxpayers have long been irrelevant to taxpayers. What fell into the budget is gone. The gang still retains the appearance of democracy in the division, gagging the disgruntled townsfolk with helicopter dough and powerful propaganda.

    The whole problem of lobbying in the states comes down to one problem - before, the States FULLY controlled the cut of the dough and the mat part in Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, etc. There was enough for everyone. Now there is a hole in the saw cut - at the final stage, the dill themselves saw well and almost uncontrollably! That's the whole trouble, and of course everyone in the states lacks, the balance of interests between the military-industrial complex, the Pentagon, a huge number of controllers and congressmen, the lobby has been disturbed. And it's not at all about taxpayers' money or whether America needs this war. Of course you need it!

    What will suit everyone in the end is to arrange a mess in parallel in Iran. But the Pentagon itself, the Ministry of Justice and most of those politicians who go past the defense topic and that they will have to fight with their own hands are not very interested in this. It is ideal to find ISIS-type barmaley (banned in Russia) or other sufferers who trample their weapons on the Persians
