Additional Ukraine Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2022 – Passed & signed on 05-21-2022

What comes to my mind are the doves saying, “Coo…Coo…Coo…Coo…”

Here is the bill that was passed by both houses of Congress, House of Representatives and the Senate, and signed into law by the President of the United States on May 21, 2022.

H.R.7691 – Additional Ukraine Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2022

I’m scrutinizing this bill a little bit as to why is SO MUCH going into / towards Ukraine and so very quickly? And nothing – hardly anything – is happening in house in our own country to help out the U.S. Citizens of the United States of America?

I’m going to highlight some of the funding allocated in various screen shots of the above downloadable PDF file

So $67 million is going to the Department of Justice…
Noted above total of $12.7 Million is going to military
Noted above totals of the red highlighted, $2.4 Billion is going to Military
Noted above totals for some other “Defense Programs” of about $86.9 Million

Why is there need for “Operating Expenses”, “International Disaster Assistance” and “Economic Support fund” for those amounts? IS IT Necessary?

So my question to everyone who reads this blog… Who is actually paying for all of these?

The U.S. Taxpayer through our taxes via income tax filing, Social Security what ever it is – still comes from us wee little ol’ people.

“Oh that’s why they need to tax the rich!” Oh get off your idiotic horse and propaganda regurgitation, the “rich” people pay a hell of a lot more taxes than the regular people who just want to live & enjoy their lives. Do the math.

And think about it, for example, if we claim that we’re giving Ukraine 1 billion, but the Ukraine president only see 500 millions, will he say anything now? No, of course not. 500 millions with the newspaper “support” are better than nothing in their situation right now. If I was the Ukraine president, I would keep my mouth shut and take the support but no respect or whatsoever in my head for the “supporting” brother.

So, the question for us now is not only “who is going to pay for all of these?” But also “where have our money gone to?”
