Randy Feenstra (R-Hull) voted for, and the U.S. House of Representatives passed, a critical military and humanitarian aid package to support Ukraine’s war effort against Vladimir Putin and rebuild the American military to prepare for potential conflicts around the globe. It passed the House by a bipartisan vote of 368 to 57.

It’s one big money laundering operation at the expense of US taxpayers and the Ukrainian people.
