Seriously what the hell, we are gonna spend into oblivion to save Ukraine and we won't give US small businesses a bump after these past 2-3 years. Inexcusable. Im doing more research but this pisses me off about as much as anything this bassackwards administration has done. If we are gonna finance Ukraine we had better take care of those businesses that employed so many here in the US.

On top of that, this would have been something my family's business would likely be able to take advantage of. Get it back to where you can look ahead and plan more than 30 days in advance. IF the left is gonna spend like crazy, some scratch needs to hit the small businesses as well as others.

I understand most Republicans are blocking it, and that's politics 101. TPTB need to understand that while they are writing checks some of it needs to go back into our system and our economy NOW, otherwise some of those other checks already written might begin to bounce.

If the goal isn't to bankrupt America, I don't know what else it could be. I think the man behind Biden has a deep-seated hatred of all things American, and is working overtime to take us down.

We know they blocked a bunch. Even if the number is off it's disgusting.

They're paying Ukraine to help with the damage Russia has done, but refused to make right the damage they did to their own country.

An emergency baby formula bill for 28 million that, from what I'm seeing reported, is mostly salaries. Likely for the people who are going to seize private property to fix the problem Biden allowed to happen on his watch.

But.. but.. the Democrats! No, the Republicans! They care about us!

Where did the Patriots go???
When is the left going to rise up and save us!?
Where are you Trump?
Where are you Elon?
Where are you AOC, and the rest of the squad???

Who's going to save us???

How is this happening?

Lmao. This is what happens when things get too big and people can only care to vote for who their favored idols tell them to.

Don't forget to vote for the best lesser of two evils every election.

Don't dare to band together. Don't be scary! Just put on your blinders and work everyday so that you can continue to fund the people and their pet projects while they continue to tell us how they care about us so so much

And to add some fresh air to stoke the fire, if you read each of those bills that allocate those billions for Ukraine, you might be surprised at how much didn’t go towards helping the Ukraine but towards helping certain members chances for re-election as a lot of those allocations went towards pet projects right here at home or even to other foreign destinations but neatly tucked away in a bill supposedly supporting the Ukraine

I don't know how much I buy into the Globalist Agenda conspiracy theories, but this has all the symptoms of a globalist CT.

In general, I have no hope that things will improve anytime soon. We are at the end of the line. Might as well get comfortable with the idea of what's coming next. It won't be good and it's too late to do anything about it.

Yep, it's what those of us that don't trust anyone in this scenario, have been barking at the moon since it began. It's about money and kickbacks and graft. My point is spending is still spending, throw some thing to the small businesses. It really does keep our economy sound and help eliminate those violent ups and downs. I'll finish with I absolutely can't stand New York or California but Id rather the 62 billion go to both of them than go to Ukraine.

Typical America.

Not a penny spent on your average American, but the printing machines never stop if a foreign nation needs propped up, a war needs financing, a multinational corporation needs bailed out or a party-affilated “charity” needs bribes.

Even Rome had the grain dole so senators would stop getting dismembered in the street every other week. Christ alive.

Funny, when people stormed the Capitol on January 6th, it was an "insurrection" of sorts and Reddit folks bashed everyone involved from social media. FBI investigated social media accounts and threw people in jail.

Now, when we have the literal proof that CONgress is not doing their jobs and funding the inside of the USA to fix the problems caused from inflation and price-gouging...everyone is up in arms. People are arguing about freaking abortion right now.

But oh no...people dare not speak of an actual "insurrection" again.

Which, from everything I have read, is what actually needs to take place in order to get CONgress to act for the people and not handout trillions of taxpayer dollars to other nations. Revolutions aren't civil, they are never fair or fun, they are violent but you know what??


...What country before ever existed a century and half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.


Thomas Jefferson

It seems that there needs to be action from people who desire change in their gov't. Look at the French, the old American Revolutionists, and others. The answer is not pretty, and maybe violence is not the answer, but surely sending a clear message to CONgress is something that needs to be done.

Voting certainly hasn't done a thing.

If voting worked Joe Biden wouldn’t let us do it.

Voted today actually. Crossed every name of the list and voted ‘does not represent my will’

Call me a donkey voter, but when voting is compulsory and they give you a pencil to fill in the form, f it. There’s not a single aim they could table that I would trust them to work towards or accomplish.

No one is coming to save us from these things.

This will be the time of turmoil.

Unless your a Democrat in a high place.
Principalities and Powers.

But at least there are no more mean tweets,
once they get rid of Elon Musk.

America/Americans last agenda confirmed.
Meanwhile, the country is burning to the ground.
And a global economic collapse is fast coming.
Watch.

$40 billion surely would by a boat load of baby formula?

I mean if infanticide and starving babies wasn't on the agenda obviously.
