Watch: Your Tax Dollars are Funding WHAT in Ukraine?! It's More Than Just Military Aid...
The U.S government may shut down next week, but don't worry because congress is doing all it can to make sure Ukraine is taken care of on your dime.
Today’s show breaks down what your tax dollars are really funding.
President Biden has asked Congress for an additional $24 billion for Ukraine, bringing the total aid to $135 billion.
Typically, all military activities stop unless they are deemed critical to national security during a government shutdown.
"This is the narrative that they want to send. That if we help Ukraine and we don't fund them to the tune of $130 billion, our security is at risk because Russia, Russia, Russia," Steven said.
The U.S. government is subsidizing small businesses in Ukraine, including Tatiana Abramova's knitwear company. The U.S. government has also bought fertilizer and seeds for Ukrainian farmers. And America is covering the salaries of all 57,000 Ukraine's first responders, as well as divers.
But as long as it saves one Ukrainian life, it is okay. Right?
"This is the problem with this war. When people say 'we have to go and defend Ukraine.' What they really mean is, more money from the United States. And you never get to stop paying taxes, but your government might get shut down," Steven said.
U.S Officials are also investigating several criminal cases involving non-military aid, and 170 Ukrainian officials, including high-ranking military officers that have been charged in corruption cases, for crimes that include accepting bribes and embezzlement.
But wait, it gets even better. Because BlackRock and JPMorgan Chase will also help set up a "fund of reconstruction."
"It is not that Americans are against a fight. Americans love a good fight," Steven said. He added, "There has to be a fight that is righteous. This is not a righteous fight because there are no righteous people involved and it is not our job."
