America LAST: US Senate REJECTS $48 Billion Aid Package For Small Businesses and Restaurants Just Hours After Approving ANOTHER $40 Billion for Ukraine – 34 RINOs Voted Yes for Ukraine and No for Americans — The Gateway Pundit

On Thursday – just hours after approving another $40 billion in US taxpayer dollars for Ukraine – the US Senate blocked a bipartisan $48 billion aid package for restaurants, gyms, and other small businesses that have been struggling in Biden’s post-lockdown economy.

Presumably, they can’t launder that money as easily as shuffling it off to Ukraine, so American business owners get the shaft yet again from its traitorous elected officials.

In other words, just another day in the DC Swamp…

Needing 60 votes to move forward, the Senators killed the package with a 52-43 vote. Five Senators refrained from casting a vote at all, and just five GOP senators voted for the motion to proceed.

Odd… considering there were a whopping 39 of these so-called ‘Republicans’ who voted for the $40 billion Ukraine aid package.

Absolutely inexcusable.

Here are the RINO scumbags who rejected the aid package for Americans, yet sided with Democrats on the additional $40 billion for Ukraine. The list includes the usual crowd of swamp creatures like Mitt Romney, Lindsey Graham, and Mitch McConnell, but it also reveals some more favorably viewed ‘conservative’ Senators had no problems finding the money when it was for the neocon war machine in Ukraine.

Looking at you, Ted Cruz:

  • Barrasso (R-WY), Nay
  • Burr (R-NC), Nay
  • Capito (R-WV), Nay
  • Cornyn (R-TX), Nay
  • Cotton (R-AR), Nay
  • Cramer (R-ND), Nay
  • Cruz (R-TX), Nay
  • Daines (R-MT), Nay
  • Ernst (R-IA), Yea/No Vote
  • Fischer (R-NE), Nay
  • Graham (R-SC), Nay
  • Grassley (R-IA), Nay
  • Hoeven (R-ND), Nay
  • Hyde-Smith (R-MS), Nay
  • Inhofe (R-OK), Nay
  • Johnson (R-WI), Nay
  • Kennedy (R-LA), Nay
  • Lankford (R-OK), Nay
  • McConnell (R-KY), Nay
  • Moran (R-KS), Nay
  • Portman (R-OH), Nay
  • Risch (R-ID), Nay
  • Romney (R-UT), Nay
  • Rounds (R-SD), Nay
  • Rubio (R-FL), Nay
  • Sasse (R-NE), Nay
  • Scott (R-FL), Nay
  • Scott (R-SC), Nay
  • Shelby (R-AL), Nay
  • Sullivan (R-AK), Nay
  • Thune (R-SD), Nay
  • Tillis (R-NC), Nay
  • Toomey (R-PA), Nay
  • Young (R-IN), Nay

At least the same Senators who voted not to send Ukraine aid remained consistent. All 11 of them rejected both packages:

  • Blackburn (R-TN), Nay
  • Boozman (R-AR), Nay
  • Braun (R-IN), Nay
  • Crapo (R-ID), Nay
  • Hagerty (R-TN), Nay
  • Hawley (R-MO), Nay
  • Lee (R-UT), Nay
  • Lummis (R-WY), Nay
  • Marshall (R-KS), Nay/No vote
  • Paul (R-KY), Nay
  • Tuberville (R-AL), Nay

The most open liberal-Republicans of the bunch voted yeson both bills (totaling a whopping $88 billion).

Poll numbers tanking? Free cash for everyone – it’s the Leftist playbook 101.

  • Blunt (R-MO), Yea
  • Cassidy (R-LA), Yea
  • Collins (R-ME), Yea
  • Murkowski (R-AK), Yea
  • Wicker (R-MS), Yea

Granted, with the current economic disaster, debt through the roof, and inflation on a meteoric rise thanks to the Biden Administration’s Marxist policy agenda, printing an additional $48 billion for anything is a questionable decision – which is what opponents of the bill argued when casting their votes.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), who – just as he did on the Ukraine bill – voted no on the second proposal, pointed out the obvious in a speech on the Senate floor before the vote. You cant fix these problems by just printing more money.

From Sen. Paul:

“Democrats need to wake up and realize that dumping more money in the economy is simply pouring $5-a-gallon gas on an already out-of-control fire.”

The fact that the Uniparty decided to send another $40 billion to Ukraine – and on the same day they turned down the money for Americans, no less – is downright criminal.

The way it looks right now is that the Democrats secured the win for Ukraine and their (il)liberal ‘democracy’ agenda – which was supported by sellout Republicans, while simultaneously fighting for relief at home as the Republicans kill the stateside relief bill; therefore, scoring a huge political win where Republican elected officials take the heat off of the Democrat’s catastrophic failures.

This is ‘court jester conservatism’ at its finest – the only role these RINOs play is to legitimize the Left and undermine the America First agenda.

What a joke. Meanwhile, American citizens are the ones paying the price – quite literally, and, as of now, any relief for Americans that could potentially arrive is back to square one.

From The Hill:

“The vote likely spells doom for the bill, which was crafted by Sens. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) and Ben Cardin (D-Md.) and backed by Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) as a way to help struggling small businesses get out of debt accrued during the pandemic. 

“Well, this was our best shot. Make no mistake about it, we’re disappointed that we weren’t able to get it done,” Cardin told reporters after the vote. “But you know, I’ll always fight for small businesses. I’ll continue to look for ways we can help.”

These traitors have shown their true colors one too many times.

As the Post Millennial’s Ian Miles Cheong asks, are you paying attention yet?

    Surprise, Surprise, Surprise! Might as well bend over and kiss our asses good-bye! “A Govt. for the people, by the people…” I believe that our representatives have forgotten who they work for, huh? We allowed this to happen. All the years of our representatives doing as they damn well pleased, and not reeling them in for doing it, is beginning to rear it’s ugly head. Allowing the likes of Pelosi who screwed her way into her position, Daine Feinstein who has always been sleeping with the enemy, Elizabeth Warren lying in masse, Maxine Watters attempting to cause riots, and what did we do? Not a damned thing!

    We have allowed these radical assholes to represent us, they get rich and we get screwed. Obama bailed out the banks and the banks came back and foreclosed on those who paid for the bailouts. Obama’s third term has shown to be a doozie! Mindless Joe Biden, in the political arena for over 40 years, the same for Pelosi. Biden’s wife went to Ukraine for Mother’s Day, and Pelosi had just gotten back. They have to make sure that the money going over there, gets laundered back to here, without a problem. Our representatives depend on that money, thus the reason they so eagerly give it out.

    And it has been decided, that this kind of talk is going to get us jailed? Disinformation or Misinformation, either one, it doesn’t matter…
    And who will be deciding what information is false? The people telling us that masks save lives? People like Gates, Fauci, that creature that is supposed to be the head of Health? Let’s throw out the truth and listen to the people that are telling us there are 90 different genders, and they don’t have the ability to determine what a woman is.

    This country is the laughing stock of the world. And yet we do nothing. The same old people will continue being elected. And do you know why? Because we don’t have real elections. We have what gives only very few people the idea that they are actually voting, that their votes will be counted, and that dead people are not really voting, it is all in our heads. That movie 2000 Mules, hit the nail on the head, and hell, they didn’t even address the voting machines, and the interference with those machines. Everyone already knows about that, they brought out the rest of the problems, and it has been that way for a long time!

    And still, no one does anything. This country is turned into a pitiful pile of dog shit. And yet, we do nothing. The country is run by a bunch of pedophiles, beginning with the President and his son. And yet, we do nothing. God is not going to let this go unnoticed, just as children being sold or given away as sex slaves will not go unnoticed. And when we are standing before the Almighty, and he asks us why we did nothing, what are we going to say????

    God help America, it needs it badly. But, God gave us the tools and brains to deal with all this while we had the chance, and we did nothing….. We sold our country to the devil.

      Thanks for sharing. I’d appreciate it if you’d tone down the vulgarity in any future comments. Thanks 😊
