Gaetz Files 'Ukraine Fatigue Resolution' To Stop Funding Proxy War
Co-sponsored by 10 House members, the "Ukraine Fatigue Resolution," cites the enormous US support to Ukraine, noting that America is the "top contributor of military aid to Ukraine compared to its counterparts," having "appropriated more than $110,000,000,000 of military, financial, and humanitarian aid to Ukraine."
The resolution adds that "on February 3, 2023, the Department of Defense announced $2,000,000,000 in additional security assistance for Ukraine."
As of that announcement, the US has committed more than $32 billion in "security assistance" to Ukraine since 2014, with $30 billion of that pledged since the start of the Biden administration, and $29.3 billion "since the beginning of Russia's unprovoked, full-scale invasion on February 24, 2022."
Gaetz' resolution includes itemized descriptions of weapons and material support.
"Joe Biden, and even some who have taken this stage, say defending freedom in Ukraine has costs for America," Gaetz said in a speech just two days after Russia invaded Ukraine. "Why should Americans have to pay the costs for freedom elsewhere when our own leaders won't stand up for our freedom here?"
Testifying on the House floor on Feb. 6, Gaetz compared threats to U.S. citizens posed by drug outlaws in Mexico to those of Russian soldiers, and, what he believes, is an overeagerness to back a conflict that does not present serious and imminent peril to the United States. -Epoch Times
