Ukraine’s ruler Volodymyr Zelensky, is old news. The ruling class of the United States is set to sign a spending bill that does not include aid for Ukraine’s ongoing war with Russia.
The U.S. House of Representatives approved a spending bill on Tuesday which Speaker Mike Johnson proposed last week to avoid a government shutdown. The Republican caucus was split over the vote, while all but two Democrats supported it. The so-called “stopgap” legislation included no money for Ukraine aid, according to a report by RT.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said he wanted a vote in his chamber to happen “as soon as possible,” after hearing from the Biden administration that it was on board. During his consultations, “both of us agreed, the White House and myself, that if this can avoid a shutdown, it will be a good thing,” he told journalists. The shutdown deadline is November 17. –RT
The issue of Ukraine military aid has become a major political issue on Capitol Hill and contributed to the downfall of Johnson’s predecessor, Kevin McCarthy. He was ousted in September by his own party, which has a slim 221-213 majority in the House of Representatives, one segment of the ruling class.
The Freedom Caucus (which is anything but considering they are all members of the ruling class) makes up some three dozen conservative lawmakers who were at the forefront of the unprecedented “rebellion”. Some of those rulers have criticized Johnson’s bill. A statement ahead of the vote said that “Republicans must stop negotiating against ourselves over fears of what the Senate may do.”
The rulers are going to send $14.3 billion to Israel to support its war against Hamas, according to a report by The New York Times.
