Why Is The U.S. Sending Billions Of Dollars Abroad During Widespread Food Shortages?

Published

on

The United States is experiencing record inflation, soaring energy prices, supply chain issues, and food shortages.

Much, if not all, of the globe is currently experiencing all these issues simultaneously. U.S. tax payers are feeling the squeeze this season as prices have gone up across the board, and households scramble to make ends meet.

Knowing this, why would U.S. officials continue to send hundreds of millions in foreign aid?

A recent announcement by U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken indicates that $215 million in U.S. foreign aid will be sent abroad to combat the growing food shortage crisis.

Critics claim that this out of control spending is only further exacerbating inflation, and the money would be far better spent at home; especially, in the wake of the baby formula shortage plaguing young families.

This is to say nothing of the billions U.S. government officials are attempting to send to Ukraine—a nation accused of being a NATO proxy, and an apologist for Nazi ideology.

While we face unprecedented crises at home, the Biden administration continues to recklessly spend money in foreign countries; whatever happened to no taxation without representation?

Here’s what sources are saying:

According to The Epoch Times:

“Today, given the urgency of the crisis, we’re announcing another $215 million in new emergency food assistance. And we’ll do much more.

We expect our Congress very soon to approve approximately $5.5 billion in additional funding for humanitarian assistance and food security,” Blinken said at the Food Security Ministerial in the United Nations headquarters.

 

The Hill reports:

Senators this week will look to pass the House-approved $39.8 billion Ukraine funding package after Paul delayed proceedings last week.

Paul refused to get on board with a deal Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) proposed last week that would have teed up a Thursday vote on the funding.
