U.S. lawmakers oppose 40 billion aid to Ukraine: we have no money but borrow from China


2022-05-20: [Article Link Following the House of Representatives, the Senate of the United States passed a 40 billion-dollar aid bill on 19 May. However, some members of the United States Congress have expressed dissatisfaction with such a huge amount of aid. The United States Senator (Rand Paul), in an interview with Breitbat News on 18 May, said that the United States would have to continue to borrow money from China in order to implement its aid programme to Ukraine. He said, "I think it's important that we know that we have no money to give, and we have to borrow money from China to Ukraine." Paul also said, “I think that if it was for new social projects, most people would have agreed to borrow money, including many Republicans, but if it was to provide military assistance to other countries, they might not have agreed that we could borrow money, or that it was justified.” According to the information received, on 10 May, the House of Representatives of the United States Congress passed a $40 billion assistance bill, but its passage in the Senate was delayed owing to Paul's obstruction. Paul believes that the United States is facing a serious inflation crisis and that aid to the United States on such a large scale will only exacerbate the crisis in the United States and cannot save Ukraine by destroying the United States economy. It was therefore not until 19 May that the Senate finally adopted the aid bill, which included $24 billion in military assistance for the provision of weapons and related equipment to Ukraine; the remaining $16 billion in economic assistance would be used to maintain the functioning of the Government of Ukraine. The opposition to the aid bill came mainly from the Republicans. Former US President Trump issued a statement criticizing the Democratic Party’s pro-Ukrain programme, “An additional $40 billion for Ukraine, but even American parents are trying to feed their children.” The Congressman of the Republican Party of Georgia of the United States, Marjorie Taylor Green, said in a podcast, that the US Congress's $40 billion plan to assist Ukraine was like a “money-laundering plan”. This assistance eventually reaches “some non-profit organizations and non-governmental organizations”, which are usually controlled by “family and friends” of members of the United States Congress.
