With Mike Johnson Speaker of the House, Biden’s far-left agenda has mostly been ground to a halt. House Republicans are pushing against demands by Democrats for bigger spending plans.
That is particularly true for one issue that most Americans have soured on.
The House is rejecting calls by Biden to spend hundreds of billions more on a foreign war. But despite lacking support from Congress, Biden pulled a move to send this “Christmas” gift.
From The Post Millennial:
“Congress needs to pass the supplemental funding for Ukraine before they break for holiday recess,” Biden said during the press conference, suggesting failure to do so would “give Putin the greatest Christmas they could possibly give him.”
Biden went on to announce that he had signed a $200 million drawdown from the Department of Defense that would be “coming shortly.”
President Biden continues to call for more American tax dollars to fund Ukraine’s war with Russia. Americans have turned against Biden’s plans, which appear to lack any clear plans to end the war. Critics have pointed out that Biden is merely enriching defense contractors—companies that make weapons and bombs.
Republicans in the House have been slow to approve of Biden’s latest demands, which amount to $61 billion. They are demanding funding to help America first, including addressing the border crisis, before more money is spent on Ukraine.
Despite this, Biden announced an additional $200 million “drawdown” from the Department of Defense for use in the Ukraine-Russian war. Biden called the spending a “Christmas gift” to Vladimir Putin.
Support for the war in Ukraine has dramatically fallen among Americans since its start in 2022. Americans have criticized Biden for promising over $100 billion to this foreign war, while his country suffers from inflation and other economic problems.
Some have accused Biden of prolonging the war, even preventing peace talks from happening. It is unclear why Biden is so intent on spending money on this foreign conflict, which could erupt into a larger crisis.
- Joe Biden announced another $200 million to fund the Ukraine war.
- This comes after Republicans rejected his demand for $64 billion.
- Support for the war in Ukraine has dwindled among Americans.
