In a video clip posted Wednesday from the verdict’s press office, Texas Republicans took aim at Hoover to announce Friday that the United States “At war,” And critics of the Democratic Party should “Focus on the Enemy” Instead the energy consumption in the house is increasing.
“When I hear the majority leader of another party say ‘wartime’ … I wonder when we voted to go to war?” Roy said.
“If we’re going to have a proxy war, and we’re going to pay Ukraine 40 40 billion, because we want to look fancy with our blue and yellow ribbons and feel good about ourselves, maybe we should actually have a debate in this chamber.” He continued.

Roy is one of 57 House Republicans who voted against passing the $ 40 billion military and economic aid bill for Ukraine earlier this month. However, the bill had strong bipartisan support and was passed by 368 votes to 57. Now it is expected to pass the Senate later this week.
Republican lawmakers who oppose the bill argue that the money would be better spent on resolving internal problems, or that pumping military aid to Ukraine risks dragging the United States into a war with nuclear-armed Russia, or both.
Roy, who described the bill “Garbage,” Reiterated this argument on Wednesday. “While the borders of this country are wide … and fentanyl is being poured in and we have $ 30.5 trillion in debt and gas prices are rising and $ 1,100 to fill the diesel tank, and we’re going to blank check for বিল 40 billion.”
“Anyway, at that same point I’m looking at my colleagues on this side of the aisle.” He concludes.
In addition to supporting the 40 40 billion package through Congress, the Biden administration has already given Ukraine about $ 4 billion worth of weapons since February, imposed sanctions on Russian oil and gas imports, and imposed several economic sanctions on Moscow. .
As the United States has armed Ukraine and shared intelligence with Kiev’s forces, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has accused Washington of waging a war. “I’m happy today” Against Russia, on the other hand, Russia’s Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev on Tuesday claimed that the West had used Ukraine as an excuse for war. “Undeclared War” Against Russia “Very stately.”
