Two Senators went to bat for the American people but were firmly shut down by both sides.
Senators John Kennedy and Rand Paul fought for us to see a breakdown of the treasure and materiel we are sending for this proxy Russia war. As a taxpayer I would like some oversight so that I might know why this money is going overseas instead of to housing the homeless, tackling the mental health and drug problems at home, fixing infrastructure, etc.
That’s $113 billion currently unaccounted for in a country famous for money laundering, drug and human trafficking, and all-round corruption.
Their motions were defeated.
The American people sent over $100B to help Ukraine . . . but this money didn’t fall from heaven—it came out of people’s pockets.— John Kennedy (@SenJohnKennedy) July 27, 2023
Democrats blocked my effort to ensure taxpayers that their money won't be stolen. pic.twitter.com/mBxp1CDdMp
Tonight I offered an amendment to provide REAL oversight of your money being sent to Ukraine. Unfortunately, it was defeated. https://t.co/mBdxiKyKwd— Senator Rand Paul (@SenRandPaul) July 27, 2023
