Republican Texas Rep. Chip Roy took to the House floor Tuesday afternoon to oppose a more than $40 billion spending bill to provide additional aid for Ukraine.
Roy criticized Democrats for rushing a vote on the huge spending bill mere hours after the text was released. Roy took to Twitter to criticize the “gall of Members of Congress lecturing us when jamming through a $40[billion] Ukraine funding bill.” He noted he and his staff could not review the 30-page bill thoroughly before the 3 p.m. vote, and moved to adjourn until Members had a chance to read the bill carefully.
“You [Democrats] want to sit here and lecture this body about what we’re going to do or not do about standing alongside Ukraine? Why don’t we talk about the American people who are hurting, the wide open borders, the inflation that’s killing people, the jobs that people can’t get because the cost of goods and services in this country?” Roy said on the House floor, according to his Twitter post.
The bill passed the House with a vote of 368-to-57 vote Tuesday and will move to the Senate where it is expected to pass, the Washington Post reported.
