Posted on 09/30/2023 2:51:41 PM PDT by Mariner
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) announced Senate Republicans will vote against advancing the chamber’s bipartisan stopgap spending bill as members see an emerging bill coming from the House as the main way to avoid a government shutdown.
McConnell told reporters that the House bill, which is a 45-day continuing resolution that includes disaster aid funding but no money for Ukraine, is the preferred option of his members, and that they will overwhelmingly vote against cloture in order to focus on that option.

By now Z is calling his CIA handlers and begging for evac.
Am I misreading this? A turtle has a spine???
This is good, but 5he cr is still hot garbage.
Time for back door supplying of tactical nukes for Ukraine. They detonate 6 or 12 of these inside Russia proper with horrendous loss of life AND military targets will change Putins mind about his special operation in Ukraine. Boom! Tables turned for sure.
It would be a game changer.
And the best part? Putin won’t retaliate.
I certainly do not relish loss of any lives, including Russian ones. But Putin has gad ampletime to withdraw and cease hostilities and has chosen not to. F*ck him and the poor slob avg Russian civilians due to due soon because if him.
Zelensky isn’t going anywhere. Aid will be supplied, perhaps more covertly.
Are you sure you want us all to play the new game as pawns on our own soon to be incinerated game board?
Z should have stayed in Canada. Like minds and all that. They would build a monument to him.
You took the question right off my keyboard. I really want to know the backstory to this! 😉
Hope it's true without backroom shenanigans.
Cornell has two of them 30mi from here...
Ukraine funding...it'll just come by a different route.
Totally on Biden?
Only fair if Kremlin nukes DC in retaliation.
Works for me! Make it so.
They won’t kill all of us. I kind of like the odds.
“Time for back door supplying of tactical nukes for Ukraine. They detonate 6 or 12 of these inside Russia proper with horrendous loss of life AND military targets will change Putins mind about his special operation in Ukraine. Boom! Tables turned for sure.”
They would be detonated in Ukraine and blamed on Russia. That’s the only scenario where the US uses nukes first.
That is an insane idea. End the funding and do it NOW!
The Ukraine funding will be discussed and voted on in a separate bill.
“By now Z is calling his CIA handlers and begging for evac.”
He could have done that on 22/2/21, when he hadn’t gotten diddly from Brandon other than the offer of an evac. I know it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth to admit that Brandon backing Ukraine is a good thing. But no worries. His “backing” is as fake as Brandon himself.
So you can separate the two. Ukraine is defending itself against a criminal attack by a dictator. Z has led them faithfully and courageously. Brandon was embarrassed into pretending to back Ukraine, but his “backing” is only expensive, not actually helpful, and the war drags on.
Is Ukraine perfect? Of course not. But electing Z was an improvement over Poroshenko in many ways.
