Matt Gaetz Introduces Resolution to END Financial Aid to Ukraine

Rep. Matt Gaetz is introducing a resolution in the House that calls for the end of U.S. military and financial aid to Ukraine.

The resolution also calls for a peace agreement after almost a year-long war.

Gaetz and ten co-sponsors introduced the “Ukraine Fatigue Resolution,” which calls for the U.S. to “end its military and financial aid to Ukraine and urges all combatants to reach a peace agreement.”

As Fox News reported:

The resolution notes that since Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022, the U.S. has been the top contributor to the Ukrainian war effort, with more than $110 billion in financial, military, and humanitarian aid to the U.S. ally. It includes more than $27.4 billion in security assistance.

As The Daily Fetched reported last month, the total amount of military aid provided to Kyiv from the United States has soared past $26 billion.

In January, Antony Blinken announced a further $2.5 billion in military aid for Ukraine.

Besides the $2.5 billion for Ukraine, congress already awarded $45 billion to the country in the $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill, which was signed into law in December 2022.

“This is about freedom, freedom for Ukraine, freedom everywhere,” Biden said, making that announcement.

Fox News also notes that the resolution lists the enormous amount of equipment that the U.S. has provided to the country since the beginning of the conflict. It also cites Pentagon officials who have said the munitions have “severely depleted United States stockpiles, weakening United States readiness in the event of conflict.”

It also claims that by providing assistance, the U.S. is inadvertently contributing to civilian casualties, and notes the U.S. estimates that 40,000 civilians had died in the conflict.

Concern about the continued U.S. funding of the war has grown among a subset of Republicans as the conflict has dragged on, with lawmakers highlighting issues at home that could use additional funding – including what they see as a failure to protect the U.S. border against a historic migrant crisis.

Matt Gaetz said the U.S. has been the top contributor to an “everlasting conflict.”

“America is in a state of managed decline, and it will exacerbate if we continue to hemorrhage taxpayer dollars toward a foreign war,” he said.

“We must suspend all foreign aid for the War in Ukraine and demand that all combatants in this conflict reach a peace agreement immediately.”

The co-sponsors of the resolution include Reps. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., Paul Gosae, R-Ariz., Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., Anna Paulina Luna, R-Fla., Thomas Massie, R-Ky., Mary Miller, R-Ill., Barry Moore, R-Ala., Ralph Norman, R-S.C. and Matt Rosendale, R-Mont.

Gaetz blasted both parties for the additional funding for Ukraine, asking if there was a limit to the funding.

“How much more for Ukraine? Is there any limit?” he asked on the House floor.

“Which billionth dollar really kicks in the door? Which redline we set will we not later cross?” he asked.

The majority of Republicans remained in favor of funding the war effort as Mitch McConnell said in December that “providing assistance for Ukrainians to defeat the Russians is the No. 1 priority for the United States right now according to most Republicans.”
