Russia’s war on Ukraine is immoral and unjustified. Prolonging or expanding the war will only bring more devastation and suffering for the Ukrainian people, leaving them worse off and Americans no safer or more prosperous.
Recently, the Biden Administration expanded U.S. policy aims to include helping the Ukrainian military achieve ‘victory.’ However, the conditions and requirements to accomplish this result were left undefined.
Now, Congress is debating a $40 billion aid package for Ukraine. This proposed package exceeds all previously delivered U.S. security assistance to Ukraine since 2014 more than five-fold, and more than doubles the $14 billion recently authorized for Ukraine less than two months ago.
America is struggling with record-setting inflation, outrageous debt, and energy depletion, among several other issues. Before any additional aid is approved, the Biden Administration and Congress need to define how additional funding will benefit U.S. interests and what their strategy is to bring about an end to the war in Ukraine.
Exercising oversight is an essential duty of our representatives in Washington, particularly when it comes to high-stakes questions of U.S. foreign policy. It is a mistake for Congress to fast-track yet another massive aid package to Ukraine when the Biden Administration has repeatedly sent confused and mixed signals about its desired end-state in Ukraine.
We deserve answers to the tough questions no one is asking or answering.
Tell your Senators to ask the tough questions – and demand answers – about the administration’s goals in Ukraine and how they are connected to American security before approving any additional aid package!
