Volodymyr Zelensky met House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Thursday in his battle to persuade skeptical Republicans in Congress to keep sending aid.
McCarthy and Zelensky met behind closed doors, after the Speaker rejected pleas for a joint address to Congress.
Congress has already authorized more than $110 billion to Kyiv since Vladimir Putin's invasion, and some members of the GOP have warned the White House they will oppose Biden's request to send another $24 billion.

Just like how he opposed the increase in the debt and deficit, then the republican house of reps voted for bidens increases.
So where does it all end exactly? Hoe many BILLIONS do we give this strooonz?
Hey, I’ve got an idea...let’s send striking UAW workers to Ukraine!
Putin invaded Ukraine because of the weakness of Biden, period, full-stop.
I wonder if Biden thinks that 1 billion equals 2 million just like a bicycle has two wheels? Most big time politicians are mathematically idiots so maybe he does.
1 billion is actually 1000 million. Biden and Congress critters should have to use that expression for a billion so that people could understand just how much money they are throwing out there.
Otherwise, McCarthy would't have agreed to meet Zelensky.
Send $24 billion to Eagle Pass, Texas. They are fighting the real invasion.
All agree that was a huge part of it. However, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if there were kickbacks/bribes that are being followed back to the Biden family from the billions we’ve given them
No, Zelensky violated the agreement on the Donbas because he had bought Biden.
No doubt. Never let a crisis go to waste.

I guess Cavein McCarthy is working himself a better deal with the Olive Troll; maybe his girlfriend Luntz is tired of eating Hamburger Helper every night...
FR thread-—A Polish MP presented the Ukrainian embassy with a ‘bill’ for $23 billion, recommending that Kiev reimburse the aid it got after suing Warsaw for imposing a restriction on grain imports from the country.
According to the Kiel Institute for the World Economy, the ‘bill’ contained reimbursement for
<><>various types of support offered directly to Kiev by the Polish government,
<><>social benefits awarded to Ukrainian refugees,
<><>and private donations made by Polish nationals.
The entire amount is most likely “significantly underestimated and incomplete,” according to one Polish official.

Way to go, Kevin.

The Ukrainian wants more. $$
why isn’t anyone talking about the money they gave Joe.. He can give it back.
Joe and Co is destroying my country..
Why in the name of all that is good.. Why doesn’t someone take hold of the steering wheel and fix this before it’s all unfixable.
We have a crime ridden government
We need to arrest those doing damage.
