Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) unloaded on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi for forcing through a $40 billion dollar Ukraine aid package with only a few hours for congress to review what’s actually in it.
“We got a $40 billion dollar bill at 3 o’clock in the afternoon —I haven’t had a chance to review the bill,” Roy said in a rage on the House floor.
“You want to talk about standing up alongside Ukraine? Why don’t we actually have a debate on the floor of the people’s House, instead of the garbage of getting a $40 billion bill at three o’clock in the afternoon, not paid for, without having any idea what’s really in it?” Roy said.
“You want to talk about standing up beside Ukraine? You want to sit here and lecture this body about what we’re going to do and not do about standing alongside Ukraine? Why don’t we talk about the American people who are hurting; the wide open borders; the inflation that’s killing people; the jobs that people can’t get because the cost of goods and services in this country?”
