    Thank you..... "We The People" have needs that our tax dollars can fulfill! Our Veterans, Schools, Teachers, Seniors, Children, Disabled, Unemployed due to C19, those with hospital bills that are about to send them into bankruptcy for the same reason, Nurses, Minimum wage workers, Mortgage holders, Renters, Small businesses, Farmers, Truckers, Infrastructure...We have Billions to toss to others but seemingly nothing for ourselves. All we get is the responsibility of the repayment for the debts incurred at the behest of other countries, none of the benefits. .We're in an abusive relationship and masking the cuts, breaks, and bruises! If we borrow money from the bank the first thing they want to know is how we're going to spend it, and they want collateral!

      The international threat USA is dealing with and you only care about domestic, but if we let countries like Ukraine and Taiwan fall in hands of our enemies, that would damage USA immensely, Ukraine provides most wheat for the world, has tons of natural resources in black sea that Russia wants to take over which would mean if Russia has access to all of that, USA and Eruope will be even more dependant on Russians in future.
      Taiwan provides 92% of the world's semiconductor chips that US military uses as well (neither US or China have achieved this technology compared to Taiwan), Taiwan's economy is also very very important to US. If we lose access to Taiwan, then that would mean ALL OF OUR advanced military tech will be dependant on China.
      You have to be VERY simple headed to not understand the global threat America has been under, please stay away from geopolitics if you have zero comprehension of it. If America doesn't show support for their allies, then many of our current allies will open more ties with China and Russia in return giving them more power and cutting us off from international power.

    Why are we helping another country when right here in the United States we have whole families sleeping in their cars or on sidewalks.
    I love how quickly politicians can spend our tax dollars and not be held accountable. Yes I know they can be voted out of office but the reality is once they are in there they are there for life.
    I don't care if this sounds like President Trump or not I believe the American people should come before any other country in the world. Invest back into America get factories running get the homeless someplace safe. 40 billion dollars would go a long way in this country to help its own citizens.
    We need to stop thinking we can fix all the world's problems. None of that benefits the average American. Keep taxpayer dollars here in the United States.

      @rtf Unfortunately, the problems we have here in the Unites States are not problems that will be solved by money. We have been on the losing side in the War on Poverty since 1964 because throwing money at it hasn't worked. Too steal an old phrase, most people don't need a hand out, they need a hand up. That takes time and effort and volunteers but the U.S. thinks cash is always the answer. I wish it were so, because I could just drop $100 off at the local Rescue Mission every week and not show up there anymore. It doesn't work that way. It never did and never will.

      @Kameron Jones ohhh yes we did and no it was not. Rewriting a narrative are you? At 83 billion and now 40 billion what do you consider older? And how much of it is not usable in combat today?
      What was our savings on this gear and equipment that did not have to be re-contracted? Since I know for a fact it is quality gear and equipment (on both giveaways) you should go there fully armed and tell just one of them to pull the stuff off. I trust you are confident in the gear "you would wear to this discussion" to come back alivs? Let us hear some real insider info. on this.
      There has to be a line of BS you are relying upon with this or is your last name in line with the first Usay?...Uday.
      Tell me something...how does 2" manilla rope feel?
      How does the Tomahawk we gave you taste for breakfast?
      I know you have the straight scoop on this 123 billion. You just have too.

      @Casper S. We didn't loose anything in Afghanistan most of that was older stuff the Afghanistan army had.

      @Casper S. I agree with you. But do take some solace in that the weapons we are giving Ukraine are from older stockpiles, and needed to be used or demolished at some point. We hadnt purchased a Javelin or a Stinger in almost 20 years, because neither had any use in our middle eastern conflicts.

    "we can not save ukraine by dooming the US economy" these are the best words spoken by a republican I ever heard. "Always aid to the relief of your fellow man but not at the expense of your own" Inflation is out of control and people are being pushed into poverty. We need to wake up. After this year Im switching from Democrat to Independent and only vote for representatives that has our country first in mind. We are sending Billions already meanwhile we have and economy thats crumbling......invest in home first.

      He isn't right though! He's ignoring what the majority of the people wanted. His job is not to decide for us what decisions to make or what we should spent on. It is up to the people. His job is to represent the majoriy of his constituents. He is not doing that. He is toying with peopels lives. He's the only douche blocking it when all of that can be solved later.

    I can accept many arguments in the mouth of the career politician. But not "the moral obligation". What rights does he have to teach the morals. The moral obligation - shady affair. And since when and why Ukraine.
    Bravo Sen. Paul for logic and ice-cold presentation. And for skipping morals and obligations.

    We also have a moral obligation to the American citizens of this country too. Can you imagine what $40 BILLION dollars could do to help people buy groceries, pay for gas, pay bills, and rent? It's great that we as a country want to help other countries and I can guarantee that the majority of people here think that way. We HAVE to take care of ourselves in order to take care of others.
