(TheRedWire.com) – Georgian Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene released a list of multiple government spending cut suggestions that the United States could follow. Greene suggested a cut in the aid provided to Ukraine and countries with “communist regimes.”
In a Twitter thread on Friday she noted that the way in which you cut spending and stop putting the country in $34 Trillion in debt is not through lies about the Republicans wanting to cut Medicare and Social Security.
According to the U.S. Department of Treasure, the country’s national debt is $31.46 trillion, a figure that has been the result of the federal government accumulating debt throughout the nation’s history.
Greene started by discussing the $1.7 trillion Omnibus spending bill, which had passed through the House last year in a 225-201-1 vote. Biden signed the bill into law in December which provided the government with additional funding for spending until September 30, 2023. As Greene noted, every single item on the bill will need to be examined in order to reduce “stupid spending.”
The Omnibus bill includes funding that will be sent to Ukraine in assistance for the Russia-Ukraine war. Greene has noted that this type of spending needed to stop, as the country has spent more than $1 billion every month in funding the Ukrainian government, as well as $113 billion that was spent on military aid.
She added that the U.S. is not on the verge of defaulting on its debt and it is no longer in a position to pay for this war. Instead, the taxpayers’ money should be spent on the nation’s protection.
