Rand Paul Sounds Alarm: America No Longer ‘Has the Money’ to Help Other Countries

Republican Senator Rand Paul warned that the United States can no longer afford to send money to foreign countries like Ukraine.

While citing concerns about problems at home, Paul highlighted the crisis at the southern border, saying it needs to be addressed before helping other countries.

Paul added that as the US heads toward a debt “at a trillion dollars every three months,” the country is in big trouble.

“This is an extraordinary thing,” Paul said on Fox News’s Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo.

“And interest rates are now becoming the highest or one of the largest items in our budget. So really, people can talk about wanting to help other countries, we don’t have the money.”

“It has to be printed up. It’s destroying our currency, and it’s why it costs more to go to the grocery store to buy your groceries,” he added.

Paul continued saying the US has gone too far with sending financial aid to other countries, warning it would lead to “a cataclysmic economic downturn” and a “destruction of the currency.”

While acknowledging his warning sounded “over the top,” he said the US is accumulating debt at such a fast rate.

Earlier last week, the Senate voted against advancing Senator Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) request for a whopping $111 billion in foreign spending.

Schumer slammed the vote results.

“A sad night in the history of the Senate and in our country,” he said, calling for his GOP colleagues to get “serious.”

The Washington Examiner reported:

“Republicans have encouraged its members to oppose advancing the foreign aid package without the border agreement in place. Border security has been a major talking point for many Republicans, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).”

“I’m advocating and I hope all of our members vote no on the motion to proceed to the shell [bill] to make the point, hopefully for the final time, that we insist on meaningful changes to the border,” McConnell said late Tuesday.
