The Democrats’ 4,155-page, $1.7 trillion omnibus spending package will provide roughly $2.4 billion in U.S. taxpayer dollars to resettle more Ukrainians across the United States, flooding the country with more refugees while Americans continue to struggle.
It appears that the war in Ukraine continues to be the top priority of Democrats in Congress, rather than the economic woes of the American people. Apparently, Ukrainians are Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) top priority as well — as the RINO senator outright stated that Senate Republicans’ “number one priority” are Ukrainians fighting against Russia.
“Providing assistance for Ukrainians to defeat the Russians is the number one priority for the United States right now according to most Republicans,” the minority leader said. “That’s sort of how we see the challenges confronting the country at the moment.”

Democrats and establishment Republicans in Congress made those priorities abundantly clear in the allocation of funds in the omnibus spending package — as the bill throws $2.4 billion in taxpayer money to refugee contractors to resettle more Ukrainians in communities across the U.S., and hundreds of millions of dollars to provide “humanitarian” assistance to those refugees.
President Joe Biden has already imported more than 100,000 Ukrainian refugees since Russia invaded Ukraine earlier this year, and now the omnibus bill will ensure that this process continues.
The year-end federal government spending bill also includes another $45 billion in funding for the Russia-Ukraine war.
$45 billion for Ukraine.
The Republican and Democrat party hates you.

All of this is being funded by U.S. taxpayer dollars at a time when the American people are struggling due to skyrocketing inflation, record-high gas prices and a surge in illegal immigration.
Breitbart News also noted in their reporting that number of Americans living paycheck-to-paycheck “has jumped to 63 percent — back up to the near-high reached in March.”
At the same time, American household debt has been increasing at the fastest pace in 15 years as more people have been forced to live on credit cards.
The share of national wealth for the American middle class — which is defined as the 60% of U.S. households in the middle of all income brackets — has been depleted to just 26.6%. Currently, the top 1% holds a larger share of the national wealth than the entire middle class.
Meanwhile, House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy has promised that any Republican senator who votes for the omnibus spending bill will have any of their own legislation blocked when it hits the House after the Republicans take control in January — tweeting: “when I’m Speaker, their bills will be dead on arrival in the House if this nearly $2T monstrosity is allowed to move forward over our objections and the will of the American people.”
Agreed. Except no need to whip—when I’m Speaker, their bills will be dead on arrival in the House if this nearly $2T monstrosity is allowed to move forward over our objections and the will of the American people. https://t.co/WCC477R4IM
