What has Ukraine done for the USA? Nothing, but promise us Crimea during the Olympics, which we lost, because we had no global right to it.
The country is bankrupt. No one really thinks all that money promised Ukraine is going to go into a missile defense shield operated by the USA, do they? This is former President Karsai and Afghanistan all over again. I say, let the Americans vote on who gets what and when and how much.
It’s the taxpayers who pay. All the middle people. Our money could be better spent on providing our own citizens a better quality of life.
Seniors took a big hit when the cost of medicare increased and absorbed the increase in social security standard of living benefits. I ended up with 2 dollars a month. Our rent increases every year – by a lot more than 2 dollars.
The healthcare system works only for the very poor and the rich and upper middle classes. Seniors are not a protected class in reality – and they come from all sectors.
I’d like to know how many IOUs to social security funds are still outstanding, that were used for other than seniors. Senior residences are being converted into HUD operated entities used as dumping grounds for all ages and special demographics, leaving the seniors to have to look for other places to live.
We need to stop bailing out other countries who abuse their own funds, at the taxpayer’s expense. The current strategy of paying countries to like us needs to stop. They squander the funds and always come back for more.
Ukraine isn’t keeping Americans safe.
President Trump took the correct actions by demanding Ukraine get their financial house in order before dumping billions of dollars on them, which will end up in the bank accounts of the rich and powerful Ukrainians, absent any oversight. Stop throwing our money away.
