Massie on Biden’s $38B Ukraine Aid Request: ‘Demand a Halt. Demand an Audit. Demand an Inspector General.’

Republican Representative Thomas Massie of Kentucky blasted the Biden administration for their recent $38 billion request for aid to send to Ukraine.

The aid spent on Ukraine would bring the total spend in 2022 to twice as much spent on roads and bridges in the United States.

"The additional $37.7 billion request, if approved, would bring the total to $104, for just the 2022 calendar year," reported Breitbart.

Massie Demands Halt, Audit and Inspector General

Massie has asked for a halt to the request and an audit.

In addition, Massie has called for an inspector general to oversee the aid.

"Biden’s latest Ukraine spending request will put the US Congress on a trajectory to spend TWICE as much money on Ukraine as we spend on roads and bridges in a year," Massie tweeted.

"No one can tell you where it’s all gone or going. Demand a halt. Demand an audit. Demand an Inspector General," Massie added.

"The Biden administration this week asked Congress for the additional aid package, which includes approximately $22 billion in defense aid and approximately $16 billion in other kinds of assistance to Ukraine," according to reports from Breitbart News.

Achieving more aid next year is expected to become more difficult for the Biden administration with Republicans winning control of the House in the 2022 midterms.
