Representative Gosar Explained His ‘No’ Votes Economically

April 21, 2024 (EIRNS)—Arizona Republican Paul Gosar, the most consistent of the Congressional opponents of war spending in either major party, gave an interview April 21 to Sputnik, in which he motivated his vote against the military aid for Ukraine and for Israel—passed in the House April 20—largely in terms of U.S. economic issues: “I’m angry that Congress and Joe Biden don’t hesitate to find another $60 billion for a corrupt country but are unbothered that inflation is 19% higher since Biden took office, gasoline is hovering around $4 a gallon nationwide, 11 million illegal aliens have poured into our country, interest rates for a home mortgage are 8%, our roads and bridges are in disrepair, our national debt is $34 trillion, real wages are in decline, parents have to decide between feeding their children or putting fuel in their automobile and we have a growing veteran homeless crisis in every corner of our country.”

Gosar said he has voted consistently “against every dime wasted on the war in Ukraine” and “repeatedly called for peace,” since the escalation of the crisis in February 2022, Gosar confirmed that he voted against the $61 billion package which advanced through the House on Saturday as well.
