Senator Tom Cotton, a Republican from Arkansas, needed only one phrase to describe President Joe Biden's request for $105 BILLION in foreign aid:
"Dead on arrival."
It simply doesn't stand a chance to pass the Senate in its current form.
Disgustingly, Biden has included aid for Gaza.
Now, I'm not saying that people in Gaza don't deserve help, but this is NOT the time for America to step in.
To whom would that money be delivered?
For what purposes would that money be used?
Giving money to our ally's enemy in the middle of a war doesn't seem smart at all, it seems like something Joe Biden would do.
Cotton laid into Biden for thinking that this would even have a chance to get past the Senate. He said:
President Biden’s slush fund proposal is dead on arrival, just like his budgets. We will not spend, for example, $3.5 billion to address the "potential needs of Gazans," essentially functioning as a resupply line for Hamas terrorists.
"We will also not spend $11.8 billion to fund the Ukrainian government’s own non-war spending, such as funding retirement pensions for Ukrainian government employees," Cotton continued. "Nor will we spend $4.7 billion for housing, transportation, and ‘services’ for illegal aliens in the United States rather than deporting them. The Biden proposal is going nowhere, and Senate Republicans will take the lead on crafting a funding bill that protects Americans and their interests."
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) disagreed with Cotton, saying that "Senate Democrats will quickly move to pass Biden’s budget request."
"This legislation is too important to wait for the House to settle their chaos," said Schumer. "Senate Democrats will move expeditiously on this request, and we hope that our Republican colleagues across the aisle will join us to pass this much-needed funding."
