White House seeks nearly $50 billion for Ukraine and… HIV?

Published in Blog on November 17, 2022 by Catie Robertson

Biden’s White House has requested $37.7 billion from Congress to fund Ukraine in their prolonged war with Russia, despite the $40 billion Congress sent in May of this year, and the additional $26 billion the US has sent since March.

Not only that, but the administration requested $9.25 billion for further COVID funding and $750 million allocated toward smallpox vaccination and HIV prevention.

This administration is out of touch not only with principles of economics but with the American people.

Americans are tired of these tremendous spending bills, which do nothing for them personally.

A substantial 30% of Americans believe Biden is doing too much to help the Ukrainians, according to a recent poll from the Wall Street Journal. Among GOP voters that number rises to 48%.

Both of these demographics were at a mere 6% in March.

Congress should take a hint.

Unfortunately, even Republican leaders like Senator Mitch McConnell take the line that “we need to get them what we need to continue to fight this war.”

There is only one problem. There is no “we” in this conflict. This is not our war.

The public recognizes that spending vast amounts of money on this foreign war will not make for a stronger America.

They have not forgotten about the $31 trillion dollar debt stamped on our country’s record.

They have not forgotten the inflation plaguing their gas pumps and grocery carts.

While the valor of Ukrainians defending their homeland is admirable, it is not America’s war to fund. The public understands that this is not our fight to win.

Even when the American people disapprove, those in power will not limit their spending. Why should they? It is not their money.

We have elected ourselves a new Congress with the same old money mismanagement.

The only solution as gargantuan as Congress’ spending is an Article V convention of states. We the People would have the opportunity to propose amendments to permanently impose fiscal restraints on the federal government.

The men and women you voted for are about to ship even more of your money overseas. Voting does little to curb this pattern. Take real action and sign our petition today.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
