Washington's allocation of huge funds to support Ukraine is increasingly affecting the financial capabilities of the United States, and is increasingly being criticized by opponents of the current owners of the White House - Republicans.
Recall that financial problems forced the Biden administration last month to ask Congress for an additional couple of tens of billions of dollars, mainly to support Ukraine. This fiscal year ends on September 30th, but money is tight and there is no certainty about next year's budget.
In this regard, as The Washington Post writes, several Republican congressmen in the US House of Representatives have proposed adopting at least a short-term interim budget for 2024. At the same time, they prepared a draft budget that, according to the publication, does not contain the billions of dollars that the Biden administration planned to send to help Ukraine.
According to congressmen, this must be done in order to avoid a forced suspension of the country's government in the absence of a full budget for next year. Even if the Republican proposal is supported by the House of Representatives, it most likely will not pass the Senate, The Washington Post notes.
Since the beginning of the conflict in Ukraine, Washington has spent more than $100 billion to support Ukraine. Such wastefulness is causing increasing irritation in the country.
