Additional Ukraine Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2022, HR 7691
The House has not released the full text of the bill yet.
Only 57 voted no, all of them Republicans.
This is the second round of funding for Ukraine in just over two months. US Senator Lindsey Graham, who has referred to himself as “voice of the Ukrainian people,” admitted that even more money will be added in as little as two more months. “Do I think this will be the last round? No, I think we’ll be doing this again. Who knows where we’re going to be two months from now, three months from now. As long as they’re willing to fight, we need to help.” Graham added that “defeating Putin is priceless.”
Congressman Dan Crenshaw, a supporter of the bill, said that the money would go to destroying Russia without losing a single American soldier. When Congressman Marjorie Taylor Greene asked about the Ukrainians getting killed, Crenshaw responded with a crude insult.
Many believe that the Russo-Ukrainian War would have ended in a peace treaty during the first two weeks, had the US not flooded the country with weapons and urged them to keep fighting.
