MTG on Defunding NATO: Time To Put the Taxpayers First

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has introduced an amendment to the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs appropriations bill that would defund the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

Greene’s amendment reflects a growing perception among grassroots Americans that the U.S. does everything for NATO and NATO does nothing for the U.S.

The Georgia Congresswoman explained that the U.S. spends billions defending other countries while our own Southern border remains wide open.

Greene also echoed a complaint voiced by Donald Trump that most NATO member nations don’t spend a minimum obligation of 2% of GDP on defense, while America continues to contribute more than its fair share.

She said the American people are tired of their money being sent overseas to defend the world while they receive nothing in return.

The amendment ultimately failed with 197 Democrats and 157 Republicans voting against it.

But Greene still received a noticeable amount of support with 45 other House Republicans voting in favor of the amendment which would strike over $443 million in NATO funding from the appropriations bill.
