    Why would anyone be against appointing an Inspector General to catalog and inventory such a large amount of money and lethal weapons? It's immoral to NOT have accounting oversight on this.

    Thank you Senator Paul, for wanting to know where this money is being spent. Our Congress is great a hiding things in their bills and wanting quick passages.

    They can always find the money when they want to EXCEPT when it comes to providing Americans with a proper (one payor) health insurance system.

    Why aren't we asking "how are we going to pay for it?" We ask if any time we the people of the country ask for anything.

    I feel Ukraine's pain and my heart goes out them deeply but 40 billion is alot to give all at once yall are so fast to give 40 billion but give us the American people a hard time with relieve funds during the state of emergency covid pandemic it took weeks even months of fighting amongst each other to approve stimulus packages for assistance it wasn't fair at all but other countries besides the US can receive millions to billions in relieve funds with no problem ijs

    I proudly quote Sen. Rand Paul, “My oath of office is to the U.S. Constitution, not to any foreign nation,” he said, adding, “We cannot save Ukraine by dooming the U.S. economy.” Rand Paul is simply honoring his taken oath as a United States Senator - can more?

    40B??!! They’re out of their minds. They refuse to help Americans, but would send billions to another country..what a joke.
