Senator Rand Paul On Thursday stalled the bill for $40 billion more funding to Ukraine. 

Yesterday The Gateway Pundit reported on the House’s bill that passed and gave $40 billion to Ukraine. This bill passed with all Democrats voting yes and 149 Republicans.  There literally is no longer any pushback from the left on the war in Ukraine.

House Passes $40 Billion Foreign Aid Package For Ukraine in 368-57 Vote — 149 Republicans Vote in Support of War Package, 57 Vote No

The liberal party that protested wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are ancient history.  The antiwar left was once a major faction of the Democrat party.  They are strangely silent today.  Why is that?  Russia is a nuclear power?  And the left seems oblivious to the seriousness of a nuclear conflict.

Senator Rand Paul stopped the Uniparty’s effort

Despite the high-profile pressure from the two leaders, Paul refused to blink, meaning that Schumer will need to take procedural steps to overcome his objection, which could take several days, but will ultimately lead to passage of the supplemental spending bill sometime next week.

McConnell and Schumer on Thursday offered to allow a vote on Paul’s amendment, but he insisted it be added to the underlying bill.

The change Paul is seeking would create a special inspector general to oversee how the Ukraine military aid is spent. Members from both parties broadly agree with that notion, but forcing a change to the bill at this stage would be very time consuming and would slow getting the needed aid to Ukraine.

“The package is ready to go,” Schumer said. “The vast majority of senators on both sides of the aisle want it. There’s now only one thing holding us back the junior senator from Kentucky is preventing swift passage of Ukraine aid because he wants to add at the last minute his own changes directly into the bill. His change is strongly opposed by many members of both parties.”

War is the uniparty goal – that and money and power.
