      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
      BlazinHot 6 Před 11 dny +1

      @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.

      @Fossil Draws I'm not a republican (not even an American for that matter actually, I'm from Italy, another country that is spending a lot on Ukraine). I'm only talking about myself and other people I've talked to that oppose all this money going to Ukraine. Besides your point doesn't really mean much, since when I talk about infrastructure, I'm not saying that any bill about infrastructure should be passed, so there's that.

    • arc arcon
      arc arcon Před 8 dny

      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.

    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?

    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!

      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 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.

When , they go to visiting their parents and friends , the way they wear nice clothes, necklaces , watches , shoes etc ..They make , you to thinking America is a paradis on the earth , but when you come .You see things differently. I already think , American 🇺🇸 gouvernement is care about American people . I have so many years , I keep learning about American politics and I can see, there are lot of corruptions everywhere in the system . I always ask myself . Why American gouvernement is not helping their country first , before they go to help out other nations . I’m so sorry , if I make any mistake , cause I’m not born here .

      @Michael Jones The majority of our homeless and disabled veterans are war veterans.

This isn't the government's money they're tossing all over the world, it's the tax dollars of We The People. We have to repay that debt. Who feeds the neighbors family while their own family starves to death!

    The policy should be "No Federal Balanced Budget Amendment:No Federal budget" as in a federal budget wouldn't be allowed to pass until an amendment gets added to the constitutions that mandated balanced budgets. The year 2001 was the last year the budget was balanced, so both parties are responsible for the inflation.

      @beth98362 You certainly do not have anything AT ALL to be ashamed of, my good man. I too started out as a tradesman. I did scaffolding and masonry right out of high school for a private company and used that to finance a software programming career. Blue collar men do not get the respect they deserve considering the back breaking work they do to feed their families which bolsters the physical infrastructure of this country. I'm truly am sorry you had to endure that mishap and thank you for your service. I pray you live the rest of your days pain and stress free. Best of wishes to you sir. 🤙🏾

    "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.

    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.

      I'm sick of people saying "we've got problems here" as an excuse to refuse aid to others. 40 billion will do an immense amount of good for ukraine military but will barely affect anything just giving it to Americans in the hopes of change. It would be burned through in a week

  • Robert Swickard
