Republican Rep. Jim Banks says it’s better to give each American $1,000 than to give Ukraine a fresh aid package approved by the Senate. Indiana Rep. Jim Banks told Fox News on Friday that the $40 billion in relief passed by the House could give each American $1,000. Giving each American $1,000 would cost far more than $40 billion. U.S. Census Population Clock shows 332.6 million people. That’s almost $332,6 billion.
“And with what’s going on in America right now, I’d rather help Americans than send money elsewhere,” the congressman remarked. If Americans split Ukraine’s $40 billion aid package, each would get $120. In its Progress Update for the fiscal year 2021, the IRS reported paying out more than $800 billion in 2020 and 2021 stimulus cheques.

This dwarfs U.S. aid to Ukraine. In March, Congress authorized a $13.6 billion deal, but the Senate has not passed the current $39.8 billion proposals.
When the total amount of money being sent to #Ukraine reaches $1 trillion, many will say “whatever happened to no more money for #stimuluschecks?” No money for the people. Just for the transnational military elites (military industrial complex).
That’s why I buy #Bitcoin!!!

Banks joined 56 other Republicans in voting against the current relief plan on Tuesday. Friday, he told Fox News he will vote no. Individual states continue to give their own stimulus payments and other measures, such as tax rebates, fueling anticipation about a fourth federal stimulus check.
