Schumer Wants To Target Republicans To Pass Military Assistance to Ukraine

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced on Nov. 27 that the Senate will hold a vote on President Joe Biden’s request for $106 billion in military assistance for Ukraine and Israel during the first week of December. (Presently a vote in the House has not been scheduled.) Schumer then pointed at Republicans, claiming that the problem with passing the military assistance is that Republicans want a trade—money for Ukraine and for U.S. border security.

But the obvious reality is that Ukraine’s failed counteroffensive has popped a lot of fantasies that never should have continued this long; and Schumer is unwilling to have that discussion. According to the recent AP-NORC poll, only 38% of Americans support the present amount of money being sent to Kiev, while 45% think we’re sending too much money.
