U.S. aid is subsidizing Ukraine corporates, paying state salaries, and buying fertilizer for farmers | Eastern North Carolina Now

Remember back in February this year when the US was funding the pensions in Ukraine, while we are told Social Security and Medicare are going broke.

Americans are paying for pensions in Ukraine

Seems we have also been pumping billions into the Ukraine economy while the US economy suffers.

John, Totally agree about the green energy and work manure. All spending regardless needs accountability, if it in in the US or in another country. Right now there is zero accountability for any of it.
Energy Secretary staged EV road trip under investigation.
“We are alarmed by recent reports of your four-day summer 2023 electric vehicle road trip apparently intended to showcase the Biden administration’s progress in achieving a radical green agenda,” the letter states. “Yet at every point in this journey, you relied upon [internal combustion engine] vehicles using gasoline to try to boost the charade of the effectiveness of green energy,” the letter continues. dailycaller.com

Those do not bother me as much as the useless green energy crap and woke crap, but is not spending in the areas that we should be to thwart Russian aggression. It is unfortunately the sort of thing Democrats do. It is like when the early Russian aggression in the Donbas happened and Obama sent uniforms and radios while Canada under the Conservatives sent weapons. The first responders may be war related as they have to deal with Russia's missile attacks on civilians. Our funding should be for winning the war, not welfare-like spending.

The US government is buying seeds/fertilizer for farmers, paying the salaries of 57,000 first responders and subsidizing small businesses in Ukraine. How does that equate to supplying weapons which is not mentioned in the text above.

This is much like providing arms to the British to fight Hitler before we were attacked ourselves at Pearl Harbor. Putin is the 21st century equivalent of Hitler or Stalin. However, there should be limits. Money for all sorts of "woke"causes that Ukrainians do not actually believe it themselves is absurd, as are billions for "green energy". Having travelled in Ukraine, including spending a summer week in Crimea, and worked with Ukrainians, I am all for helping them fend off Russian aggression, but Biden goes too far in many of his subsidies. We should have gotten them more sophisticated weapons sooner, but there are lots of things Biden is funding outside the militry sphere that he should not be.
