Biden considering asking Congress for $100 BILLION in additional funds for Ukraine
10/11/2023 // Arsenio Toledo // Views

President Joe Biden is considering asking Congress for an additional $100 billion in taxpayer funding for Ukraine, which the White House claims would be sufficient to help fund Kyiv's war against the Russians until at least after the 2024 election.

The White House is currently drawing up plans to ask Congress to release a "big package" of military and humanitarian aid for Ukraine immediately amid concerns that a massive spending package could damage Biden's chances of being reelected in November 2024.

"The 'big package' idea is firmly supported by many throughout the administration," said one source familiar with the discussions. "Supporters of Ukraine want this to be a 'one-and-done' big bill, and then not have to deal with it until after the next election."

The demand for $100 billion in additional funding comes as Congress continues to argue over the budget for the October 2023 to September 2024 fiscal year. Sources pointed out that the Biden administration is "not making any decisions about whether to do one big package or about how much it would be" until a new Speaker of the House of Representatives is elected.

Biden was initially asking Congress for an additional $24 billion in funding for Ukraine in a package designed to last until early next year, but this proposal was dropped during negotiations with Republicans over the stopgap funding bill.

American taxpayers have already "given" Ukraine over $100 billion

Since the beginning of Russia's special military operation in Ukraine in late February 2022, Congress has approved more than $113 billion in taxpayer assistance for Kyiv.

Of this funding, over $62 billion has gone to the Department of Defense and is classified as "security assistance." Some of this military aid has gone to the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative, which helps purchase all kinds of military equipment for Ukraine from American and foreign sources alike.

More of the military aid has come in the form of presidential drawdowns, which are orders from the White House directing the Pentagon to immediately deliver military equipment from U.S. stockpiles and other services to foreign countries in crises. From February 2022 to late September of this year, Biden has signed at least 47 drawdown orders telling the Defense Department to take crucial military hardware from dwindling American stockpiles to send to Ukraine.

Around $20 billion worth of military aid funneled into the Defense Department is unaccounted for. Some of this money has gone to meet higher Pentagon expenses, such as additional U.S. troop deployments to Europe, but much of the additional spending remains classified.

Another $32.5 billion has been allocated to the U.S. Agency for International Development and is classified as humanitarian aid. Most of the rest of the funding, around $18 billion, has been funneled to the Department of State and other federal departments and agencies.

Furthermore, not all of the money has been spent directly on Ukraine. Some of it has been spent on other Eastern European nations under the claim that they need U.S. assistance to help fortify their countries against any alleged Russian military activities, political interference and so-called disinformation campaigns.
