America Last: Vote Nears on $100 Billion Security Package

The U.S. House of Representatives may be voting as early as Saturday on separate bills totaling nearly $100 billion that will include aid to Ukraine, Israel, and an Indo-Pacific security package. But questions remain as to why Congressional leadership is determined to send so much money abroad when Americans are struggling right here at home.

Thursday, House Speaker Mike Johnson, facing intense opposition from members of his own party, teamed up with Democrats to advance the bills for a vote.

Johnson has been strongly criticized by a number of House Republicans who are fed up with ongoing U.S. involvement and funding of foreign wars. Two members of Congress, Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Thomas Massie (R-KY) are actively supporting a Motion to Vacate the current Speaker’s position.

Congressman J.D. Vance (R-OH) retweeted a comment from former president Trump which strongly questions why Europe doesn’t have more skin in the game.

Those who take exception to Trump’s claims that Europe hasn’t contributed as much as the U.S. seem conspicuously reluctant to address the question of exactly who members of Congress purport to represent.

Did the oath of office that each member of Congress has taken, include a sacred promise to defend and uphold the laws of Ukraine, Israel or Taiwan? Johnson was emphatic upon becoming Speaker of the House that U.S. border security was a top priority? What changed?

The average American’s appetite for intervention and entanglements overseas has been waning over the past 20 years as the War on Terror has become a series of open-ended conflicts that are never definitively resolved. Is there a limit to what the voters will tolerate?

We’ll likely know the answer after the upcoming election.
