Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) announced Friday that he will strip funding for Ukraine out of a Pentagon spending bill after Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) joined conservatives in blocking the legislation from advancing earlier this week.
McCarthy said he would remove the $300 million for Ukraine currently in the Pentagon appropriations bill and hold a separate vote on the funding.
“It would be out and voted on by itself,” McCarthy said when asked about the Ukraine aid in the Pentagon appropriations bill.

The Pentagon already made it clear they will keep doing what they’re doing regardless of money voted for Ukraine or not.
“Kevin seems to have found his balls.”
Apparently they were in MTG’s purse.
Pretty much how the DEMs operate when the SCOTUS rules against them.
The ONLY time McCarthy does the right thing is when he’s pushed up against the wall and realizes his usual BS isn’t going to work that time.
“ McCarthy said he would remove the $300 million for Ukraine currently in the Pentagon appropriations bill and hold a separate vote on the funding.”
Why advance it to a vote at all. It would pass with monolithic DemocRAT votes augmented with Republican neocon/RINO voted,
Looks like Milley-Vanilli has thoroughly ruined the military. If Trump regains the Presidency, he needs to make an example of Milley that won't be soon forgotten. He should be recalled to active duty and Court Martialed for insubordination and TREASON! That is the only way to begin cleaning up the woke stench!
I'm not so sure.
I think she's hold'n 'em in her two little hands and starting to squeeze -- real hard!
What's that you say'n Mr. Speaker :-). You want more?
Actually, his balls have been neatly handed to him with a note from Matt Gaetz, “motion to vacate is next”
The RATS will simply put it back in when it gets to the Senate.
“We’re going to repeal 87,000 IRS agents on our first day.” - Kevin McCarthy
Apparently the Federal Reserve just shovels money to the Pentagon for Ukraine—no Congressional appropriation needed...
Won’t do any good unless he strips the slush funds from the Pentagon, State Dept., CIA, etc. It’s way too easy for covert funding. Just ask the Benghazi crowd.
Not really, the Ukraine industrial complex will still get its money. it will pass later with dem support and a minority of R’s.
Of course, it’s at least possible that we’re witnessing a good cop bad cop routine to give McCarthy cover for doing certain things that the establishment wing of the GOP caucus doesn’t support.
300 million? Biden’s been giving billions. What about that?
As it should have been from the start. And I don't think they have the votes for it.
