Congress is considering an additional $45 billion in aid to Ukraine. For any grinches, Volodymyr Zelensky allegedly visits Washington, D.C., today to dissuade them from stealing Ukraine’s Christmas. The $45 billion amounts to almost a third of the country’s gross domestic product prior to the Russian invasion and about $130 for every man, woman, child, demiboy, fakaleiti, pandaka, two-spirit, and alternative gender in the United States.
“Providing assistance for Ukrainians to defeat the Russians is the No. 1 priority for the United States right now according to most Republicans,” said Sen. Mitch McConnell.
Really? More so than border security? More so than shrinking government? More so than depoliticizing and defanging the Justice Department and intelligence apparatus? Republicans want the Ukrainians to win. Do Republicans $45 billion want the Ukrainians to win?
