Many Republicans and Democrats wanted to make the Biden regime’s rushed plan of a $40 billion aid package to Ukraine a reality – but wait, not under Senator Rand Paul’s watch.

Reportedly, Ukraine has consistently been ranked among the European continent’s most corrupt nations for years. Because of this, it is crucial that when we send them money, we know how that money is being spent.

It’s a good thing that Republican Senator Rand Paul (KY Senator Rand Pau) is quick to action, and blocked the passage of the $39.8 billion House-passed Ukraine aid after Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) presented a unanimous consent on behalf of himself and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell today.

Paul asserted that the aid amount will almost equal the entire military budget of Russia and that the U.S. will have to borrow the money from China to send it to Ukraine.

He stated that there are domestic priorities to tackle right now with inflation reaching a 40-year high and gasoline hitting a 48 percent high since last year.

“My oath of office is to the national security of the United States of America. We cannot save Ukraine by dooming the U.S. Economy,” Paul concluded.

100 Percent FedUp commented further:

So when an aid package containing $40bn passes through the House with little opposition, and has bipartisan support in the Senate, only to be stopped by one brave Senator requesting oversight on how that money is to be spent by Ukraine, you know that for the Democrats and the RINOS it’s not about helping Ukraine at all. It’s about warmongering and virtue signaling.

Senator Rand Paul (KY) stopped the passing of a bloated, $40 billion aid package to Ukraine on Thursday by, essentially, asking how it is going to be spent. The Kentucky Senator stymied both Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer and minority leader Mitch McConnell both by refusing to pass the bill without an amendment to it which requires an inspector general to oversee the spending in Ukraine. Until this amendment is added, Paul will not pass the bill.

The following objection was made by Sen. Paul in the Senate chamber as he explained his reasoning for refusing to allow this bill to pass.

“My oath of office is to the US Constitution, not to any foreign nation. And no matter how sympathetic the cause, my oath of office is to the national security of the United States of America. We cannot save Ukraine by dooming the U.S. economy.”

“This is the second spending bill for Ukraine in two months. And this bill is three times larger than the first.”

Of course, only REAL conservatives and patriots are praising Sen. Paul’s words and actions in the Senate.
