  • The House passed a more than $60 billion bill that provides more military aid to Ukraine.
  • It's part of a larger foreign aid package that's likely to pass the Senate and be signed into law.
  • 112 Republicans voted it against — the most ever, and a majority of the GOP conference.

Saturday's vote marked the first time the House had approved billions of dollars in Ukraine aid since December 2022, when Democrats still controlled the chamber.

In the two years since Russia's invasion, opposition to aiding Ukraine has grown from a fringe position to a majority view among House GOP lawmakers. Many argue the money should be spent domestically or that policy changes at the US-Mexico border should take precedence.

Here are the 112 House Republicans who voted against the bill.

Since rest of the thread is undirected anger without naming names, let's name names!

Find your representative here and make note if they’re on this list. They’re up for reelection two years after being elected.

For those who don't know, The New York Post was the first American media outlet that Rupert Murdoch brought back in the day. It tries to play off being 'center Right' as opposed to Fox News. Following the spin on the spin can break your neck.

When a Republican loses Rupert Murdock, things probably aren’t going the way you planned.

[-] [email protected] 21 points 3 weeks ago

It's a New York paper, so they can hate on MGT. They don't have to be consistent with the message from one branch tp the other.

I remember back in 2008. The Post had two op-ed pieces on the same page. One writer said that Obama was just another neoliberal hack who'd push a softer version of GOP plans and the voters should just opt for McCain. The other said that Obama was a hard Left radical who would about an extremist agenda.

Blatantly copying my previous comment.

Hey, Republicans, do y'all remember Red Dawn? Those two movies you made about The USSR and Russia being the ultimate evil enemy that was going to invade and must be stopped? You do? Good.

My real question is, why in the name of all that is Murican, ARE YOU ACTIVELY HELPING RUSSIA WITH THEIR ILLEGAL AND UNPROVOKED INVASION‽‽‽

[-] [email protected] 72 points 3 weeks ago

Because the Soviet Union was a communist dictatorship, which the GOP hated (the communist part of it, anyway), and modern Russia is kleptocratic oligarchy, which the GOP loves. Easy enough to tease out, really.

[-] RememberTheApollo_ 32 points 3 weeks ago

Even simpler:

Communist = lefties

Oligarchs & dictators = rich CEOs running the country.

Guess which ones the republicans have been supporting for decades.

[-] [email protected] 21 points 3 weeks ago

Ever simplerer:

[-] Carmakazi 38 points 3 weeks ago

The GOP decision-makers see the Russian oligarchy and how freely they leech their wealth from the public and say "I want that."

The MAGA followers see modern Russian society as a bastion of "western" (white) moral traditionalism holding out against progressive globalist degeneracy where none of this "woke" shit flies.

They have more in common with modern Russia than they do with modern America. They want the US to be more like Russia and many will be willing to spill American blood to get there.

The fact that the only Nays were Republicans speaks volumes. The Republican party has been compromised by Russia, it's the only explanation that makes sense.

[-] [email protected] 65 points 3 weeks ago

And, to clarify for future readers, this vote was only for the Ukraine Aid portion of the package. Each part got a separate vote. So even though the package includes Israeli funding, it wasn't part of this particular vote which was exclusively about aid to Ukraine.

well you got the names, now how about doing a little background check if there is some russki money lying somewhere in those traitors bank accounts...

So now you have a list of politicians that can either be bought by Russian money, or are dumb enough to fall for Russian propaganda.

Neither of which should be elected to lead a country.

[-] disguy_ovahea 16 points 3 weeks ago* (last edited 3 weeks ago)

Agreed. We’ve also obtained a Russian foreign policy document that explicitly states the support of the right-ring party in leveraging the direction of the US in favor of Russian support.

The (R) is for Russian Asset.

Must have been a dilemma though, voting for Ukraine to fall or voting for dead Muslims.

[-] [email protected] 28 points 3 weeks ago* (last edited 3 weeks ago)

Common misconception but no, actually, each portion got a separate vote. 112 legislators voted against aid to Ukraine, 58 voted against aid to Israel.

This thread is great because pro-Russian morons are exposing themselves so it makes it real easy to block them.

I'm honestly surprised that 101 Republicans voted yes.

112 Government of Putin representatives and fully funded by the fucking Muscovites. Every single one of those asswipes, along with the MAGATs, should join their comrades on the front to receive a special greeting from NATO and Ukrainian shrapnel. Fuck them and in this case, the French should have never helped the Americans during their fight against the Red Coats.
