Big, if true.
From The Telegraph, "Kevin McCarthy 'agreed to cut aid to Ukraine' to secure US speaker role":
Kevin McCarthy reportedly agreed to spending caps that would limit future aid to Ukraine as part of the deal with ultraconservatives that enabled him to finally be elected as House speaker on Saturday.Seeing as how the Taliban defeated the US empire in Afghanistan, I guess Gaetz et al. should take that as a compliment.
According to reports, to end the impasse, Mr McCarthy agreed [to] a deal that the House would commit to passing bills that would cap all discretionary defence spending at 2022 financial year levels, meaning roughly $1.47 trillion. Congress has passed four emergency supplementals totalling more than $100 billion since Russia’s invasion in February.All that $100+ billion went to Ukraine, in case the wording there wasn't clear.
President Joe Biden will require Congress to approve any additional military aid later this year. Should one of the rebel lawmakers - who have vowed to oppose any further aid packages - be given leadership roles in the House Rules Committee it could create immense hurdles to passing additional assistance legislation.Well done, Rep. Gaetz.
Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky congratulated McCarthy on Saturday, adding: "We're counting on your continued support and further U.S. assistance to bring our common victory closer."
Zelensky also thanked the US and Joe Biden for "the new weaponry" and billions of dollars they sent to drag out the war.
"Thank you @POTUS for the completely new weaponry, incl Bradley vehicles, anti-aircraft missiles," Zelensky said. "Awesome Christmas present for [Ukraine]!"
Russian president Vladimir Putin proposed a "Christmas truce" for Orthodox Christmas starting at noon on January 6 until midnight on January 7 which the Zelensky regime rejected immediately by shelling Donetsk.
