USA spending more on Ukraine than infrastructure

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Republican Congressman Thomas Massie has claimed on Twitter the federal government has spent more on Ukraine in the past six months than it has on road infrastructure annually.

Massie was one of 57 members of the House of Representatives who voted against the package, which was later blocked in the Senate by one dissenting vote from Senator Rand Paul. It is still widely expected to pass later this week.

The member for Kentucky took to Twitter to justify the grounds for his vote by comparing the U.S.’ recent aid spend on Ukraine against its annual commitment to domestic infrastructure.
