Full List of 31 Republicans Who Voted Against Military Aid for Ukraine

(PresidentialHill.com)- Last Thursday, the United States Senate passed a massive $1.5 trillion appropriations package that contained a substantial $13.6 billion emergency humanitarian package for Ukraine. The funding is designed to assist Ukraine in its fight against the invading Russian army and to help the civilians in Ukraine who have been displaced.

The package won the support of Republicans and Democrats alike, but a substantial number of Republicans stood in its way. Republican legislators who didn’t support the package – and for many reasons – faced a barrage of abuse from people online.

However, few stopped to consider why they voted “no” in the first place.

Republican Utah Governor Mitt Romney said that he didn’t support the legislation – not because he didn’t support the fight against the Russians but because he considered the process to be rushed.

Other Republican legislators expressed similar concerns.

Senator Marsha Blackburn had a good reason not to vote for the bill, too, citing concerns about rising inflation and the Democrats’ willingness to spend increasingly large sums of taxpayers’ money.

“Under the Democrats’ leadership, inflation has reached a 40-year high and gas is more expensive than it was in 2008, at the height of the financial crisis. With one vote, the left was trying to smuggle through more wasteful spending,” she said.

She has a point, right? The Democrats finally found a way to get Republicans to pass yet another spending package…all it took was appealing to emotion and including provisions to help Ukraine fight a war against the Russians.
