Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene took to the floor of the United States House of Representatives to criticize a spending bill sending more American dollars to Ukraine.

“I rise in opposition to the Ukrainian Supplemental Bill,” she said. “$40 billion dollars, but there’s no baby formula for American mothers and babies. An unknown amount of money to the CIA in the Ukraine Supplemental Bill, but there’s no formula for American babies and mothers.

“$54 million in COVID spending in Ukraine, but there’s no formula for American babies and mothers. $900 million for non-profits and organizations in Ukraine, but there’s no formula for American babies and mothers. $8.7 billion for economic support and funding in Ukraine, but there’s no formula for American mothers and babies.

“If this is about claiming that it’s about saving lives, let’s be real, then we would care about war-torn countries like Ethiopia, so that’s a bunch of hypocrisy because I never hear Ethiopia brought up here.

“Totally ignoring, completely ignoring our own border crisis, our own baby formula crisis, and brutal inflation, skyrocketing gas prices, that no one can afford, but $40 billion for Ukraine. Stop funding regime change and money laundering scams and U.S. politician coverups of their crimes in countries like Ukraine.

“The American people do not support paying for constant U.S. involvement in foreign affairs while our own government fails our own country. Let me remind everyone here, we swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America and our borders — we should be paying attention to our country right now.”
