The White House is planning to ask Congress to authorize more
Originally published in AntiWar
The last massive aid package Congress authorized for Ukraine has about $6 billion left, which is expected to be used up by mid-summer, POLITICO reported Monday.
So far, the US has authorized about $113 billion in spending on the war in Ukraine, which includes military aid, direct budgetary aid, training, funding for US troop deployments in Eastern Europe, and other types of assistance.
Once the final $6 billion dries up, the Pentagon won’t be able to ship more weapons to Ukraine. That means the White House is expected to ask Congress to authorize more spending on the war soon.
A senior Biden administration official told POLITICO that the White House is discussing a new package and is going to time it so the weapons can keep flowing to Ukraine. The official said the administration is “fully committed” to supporting Kyiv in the war “for the long haul.”
The POLITICO report said that massive aid packages for Ukraine might not be as easy to ram through Congress as they were before, citing the debate over the debt ceiling and dissent from a small but significant group of Republicans. But the majority of Republicans support arming Ukraine, including GOP leadership, who have been critical of President Biden for not sending longer-range weapons and fighter jets.
“Although there are dissenting voices, the large majority of certainly Republicans — for sure in the Senate and arguably in the House as well — believe strongly that we need Ukraine to win and that the outcome there is something that matters not only to that region, but to the United States and our national security interests,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC).
On the Democrat side, there is virtually no opposition to arming Ukraine. While there’s still strong support in Congress for arming Ukraine, hawks in Washington are concerned it could decline if Ukraine’s long-awaited counteroffensive fails.

don’t be naive. they won’t stop it, they gradually increase their ‘aid’. the official numbers are not even half of their really send. politico? us congress? laws? don’t make me laugh, mickey mouse show for peasants
the fed can print an infinite amount of dollars…. but the armies don’t have an infinite amount of men.
more spending? they can hardly control their own national debt and risk defaulting sending their country and all their european vassals into a financial crisis the world has never seen before and they still want to keep sending money to zelensky? oh man, the determination is admirable but boy are they stupid
boy is it stupid not to understand that financialy the world is totaly connected….one part goes down,all go down, especialy true for the big players.
sure regional, non important powers ( aka cuba, venezuela, iran, russia ) can fail, the system can handle it, but totaly different story when eu, japan, usa, china , india or ksa fail.
your monkey brain failed long time ago, while your occupied failed nation and banana-colony fell 80 years ago – still on your knees licking yankee bananas. here take one now, perhaps it will increase your iq points to 1 : 🍌
lol u idiotic …80 years ago ( may 1943) der führer was still in power, all western europe either under german control or neutral, apart from the island monkeys aka brits, 1 million flatheads just had died in stalingrad and the end of world war two, maybe somewhat predictable, but for sure not certain.
apart from that, tell ur zero hero düfaz to stop driving our german cars in propaganda videos( like when crossing bridge to annexed krim) , give back the stolen european “failed” state airplanes and start to produce ur own stuff, useless, subhuman flathead scum.
anyway endlösung der russenfrage is coming,trust me.
bye bye ivans. horrido johoo,dran drauf drüber, sieg
russia and iran are important though
sure they are, but not system relevant when it comes to global financial system.

len nech lejú peniaze do tohto nevydareného projektu, na zadržiavanie rf!!! usa a spolu s nimi aj eu sa každým dňom ponárajú viac a viac do vlastných sračiek, ha, ha, ha … tieto finančné prostriedky sa im nikdy nevrátia. a po skončení švo si rf bude nárokovať späť aj nezákonne im zabavenú hmotnú štátnu rezervu v západných bankách. tak isto príde na pretras aj plynovod nord stream a nord stream ii.
the dollar will drop everytime they print more for another package, not that they have any choice. they cant even afford the interest on their debt, which rises .3-million/minute (usdebtclock.org)! when you’re this far in debt, the creditors own you, and the us puppets do as they’re told.
you’re right but in an internal market a currency has value as long as people believe in it (or are brainwashed to believe in it). if your economy depend on foreign countries, the shit really hit the fan when these countries don’t trust the real value of your currency. that’s why today china, russia, eu and the usa are slowly shifting their economy to their own internal market. the usd wont disappear but lot of us will be broken.
zelensky would eat the shit out of bidens dirty diaper if the lodgemaster ordered him…the thief of kiev.
ukraine has been draining money, resources, weapon stock with aggravates catastrophic economic ,debb crisis and dedollarization of us and nato😅.

it used to be said that they are allowed to rule because god wants it that way (but in truth it was a dictatorship)….nowadays it is said that they are allowed to rule because the people want it that way (it is still a dictatorship)…. ……. this planet is sick, it has politicians.
