Certain politicians weren’t kidding in the least when they said they’re committed to aiding Ukraine until the fight is over. One of the biggest proponents of that push is Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), and his latest move is going to add to the already astronomical total these politicians have tallied while giving the bill to the American taxpayers.

Nearly two weeks ago I reported that President Joe Biden was considering a $100 billion aid package that included money for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan. Well, Breitbart reported that’s now going to end up costing taxpayers around $105 billion, with $61.4 going to Ukraine, $14.3 billion for Israel, $13.6 billion for our own southern border — I know, shocking — $9.15 billion “for humanitarian aid for Palestine, Israeli and Ukrainian civilians” and another $7.4 billion “for Taiwan and Asian allies.”

The amount of aid going to Ukraine would put the total aid for that country at around $200 billion. Plus, it’s interesting to note that the Biden regime is playing both sides of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict with aid going to both.

In an effort to get the aid to Ukraine approved — again, sending the bill to the American taxpayers — McConnell met with Ukrainian Ambassador Oksana Markarova on Monday to go “all out” for the cause, as Politico put it.

It was also reported that new House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) is against the package, as he would rather separate the funding into individual packages instead of one lump sum to be divided. He is supposedly in favor of an “Israel-only funding bill,” that would see Ukraine and the other countries funding dealt with at another time.

You have to wonder whether McConnell and other supporters of the Biden aid package have taken even a second to consider the cost to the American taxpayers, who — at the end of the day — are the ones paying for all of this.

Remember, politicians don’t mind spending money…as long as it’s not their own.
