Lawmakers have agreed on a $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill that is expected to pass both chambers of Congress before the Christmas holiday.
The spending bill is required to pass the House and Senate before the federal government’s funding runs out on Dec. 24.
Like all spending bills that come out of Washington DC, this one contains a ton of money that won’t keep the government running.
The spending bill includes another $44 billion in funding for Ukraine – a fact that has many Twitter users seeing red.
If the bill passes, Ukraine will have received over $100 billion in taxpayer dollars to fund its war against Russia.
Black Americans, who have historically voted Democrat, will likely never see a dollar in reparations in their lifetime.
Twitter CEO Elon Musk asked his followers to contact their elected representatives.
“Whether for or against, please let your elected representatives know what you think about this $1.7 trillion spending bill that they’re trying to pass!”

Meanwhile, Ukraine President Zelensky is in Washington, D.C. today. He will meet with President Biden and members of Congress who have been so generous with taxpayer dollars.
Democratic lawmakers are eager to release former President Trump’s tax returns to distract Americans from what’s really going on in Washington, D.C. But not many Americans are falling for the carrot on the stick ploy.
Save US! Screw Ukraine!

Giving billions to Ukraine hurts Americans. When the choice is between hurting Americans or not hurting Americans, how about we choose not to hurt Americans for once? Especially when the choice to help Americans often hurts Americans in the long run.
