In a stunning move that has conservatives scratching their heads, the Senate has passed a whopping $95 billion military assistance funding package for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan. But fear not, dear readers, because Speaker Mike Johnson of the House is not about to let this outrageous bill see the light of day. He has made a bold and principled stand against the reckless spending proposed by the Senate.
It’s truly mind-boggling how some Republicans could betray their conservative principles and vote in favor of this wasteful spending. Thankfully, there were still a few honorable and sensible Republicans who saw through this charade and voted against this outrageous bill. They understand that we have our own problems to address here at home, and that we should prioritize the needs of Americans first.

One can’t help but wonder why these countries are receiving such generous handouts in the first place. Sure, Ukraine may be under attack and Israel may be fighting terrorists, but shouldn’t they be able to handle their own defense? It’s time for them to take responsibility for their own security instead of relying on the American taxpayer to foot the bill.
But of course, the Democrats are all too eager to throw money at any cause that makes them feel morally superior. They are fully on board with this aid package, as they always are when it comes to spending other people’s money. It’s clear that their priorities lie not with the American people, but with appeasing their own far-left base.
Speaker Johnson is truly a hero for standing up to this madness. He knows that we can’t continue down the path of endless spending and debt. He understands that it’s time for the government to rein in its excessive spending and make the tough choices necessary to get our fiscal house in order.
So let’s stand behind Speaker Johnson and demand that the House reject this ridiculous bill. It’s time for Republicans to remember their conservative values and put the needs of the American people first. No more wasteful spending, no more handouts to foreign countries. It’s time for common sense to prevail in Washington.
