WASHINGTON – Senator Mike Braun released the following statement on a $95 billion foreign aid package – over $70 billion of which will go to foreign countries – that passed the Senate early this morning in a 5:13AM vote. Senator Braun previously supported an Israel aid bill passed by the House of Representatives that was paid for with cuts to the $80 billion President Biden spent to double the size of the IRS.
“In the middle of the night, the Senate voted to give away $70 billion of borrowed money to foreign nations – not one dollar of it a loan, paid for, or offset with cuts. By paying the world’s bills and ignoring our own $34 trillion debt, we are neglecting our duty to our kids and grandkids.” – Senator Mike Braun
