I think the amount of money were giving to Ukraine is ridiculous and we should spend that on our citizens

But even if we weren't spending it on Ukraine, we wouldn't be giving it to the ppl

And America cares about Ukraine like thry cared about the Middle East

Nothing we do is out of the kindness of our hearts, it's just in our interest
Harsh realities :francis:

To everyone who is 25 35 45 years old and still hasn't learned how government spending works.....


Congress, not the president, determines federal spending. The president cannot spend new money without Congressional approval. The president does have some latitude to direct already-approved spending so long as it is in line with the function it was approved for.

There was a small spending package for Ukraine approved by Congress (2% of this year's budget). That is the only new funding that was approved. All other aid for Ukraine was already-bought weapons sent from the Pentagon, surplus we had in storage, it was not new approved funding.

Biden can't redirect any funding for Ukraine to a pandemic effort. It's unconstitutional. And the amount of funding approved for Ukraine was miniscule compared to the federal budget anyway. If y'all want something to be angry about, then be angry that Pentagon funding has ballooned to $800 billion a year, up from just $640 billion at the end of Obama's term, mostly due to ra ra go military funding increases during the Trump administration. That extra $160 billion every year, most of which just goes to defense contractors, is far more relevant to US budgets than a one-time $40 billion drop.
Opinions uninformed and ignorant is what matters over facts on the coli

how dare you try and explain how shyt works.

We have to accept that Covid is a normal part of life now. It will be here indefinitely like the flu. It's part of normal life and it's time for the government to start acting like it instead of pressing the panic button during each spike. Because, people are losing patience. It sucks, but it's the reality. Encouraging people to get covid shots like the flu shot every season and putting general information out there in a normal clinical fashion should be the tactic now. Not this:

Everyone I know has had covid and some, like myself, twice. I know I will get again, probably sometime this year. I think most people like me are just treating it as a part of our normal day to day life and the administration is still operating rhetorically like it's 2020 because this is an issue that largely put this administration in office. The problem is they need to evolve how they approach this with the American public because the public's s attitudes have changed. It's not going to help him win in 2024 and will hurt him at this point if he treats it like he did in 2020.

I mean I'd rather get around it now then do nothing until it's too late
a lot of people in this thread think he is asking for money to start a pandemic rather than prepare for one. how do you think that will affect them getting funding put aside if this is how people reason today? :pachaha:
