Rand Paul blocks $40 Billion to Ukraine…
‘Our aid to Ukraine is now equal to the total defense budget of Russia’
“My sympathies are with Ukraine; I wish them luck, I want them to defeat the Russians, I want them to push the Russians out of their country. But we also have to be concerned with our country and with double-digit inflation here, this will make it worse. We can’t just shovel piles of money out the door and have nobody oversee it.”
