Majority Believe US Sending Too Much Foreign Aid

Even as Congress controversially approved tens of billions in new foreign aid and nothing to secure the southern border, Americans signaled they’ve had enough. A new Rasmussen Reports survey discovered that 57% of likely voters believe too many taxpayer dollars go to other countries.

This result came on the heels of lawmakers following the White House lead and rubber stamping another $95 billion aid package for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan.

The recent survey found that on top of the majority who believe the expenditure is over the top, only 10% found it to be too little. Another 23% were happy with the current level of foreign funding.

On top of what has already been spent, Ukraine will receive $61 billion in U.S. generosity, Israel gets $26 billion and Taiwan will be given $8 billion.

And along with the majority of respondents opposed to this level of foreign aid, there are many conservatives in Congress ready to draw a line in the sand.

Republican critics concede that this latest battle was won by the Biden White House. However, some already declare that there will be no more going along with Democratic demands for more outlays.

Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) emphatically asserted that funding for the Eastern European war will end. “If Ukraine thinks that it’s getting another $60 billion supplemental out of the United States Congress, there’s no way.”

Biden administration officials touted the latest package as the last needed for the current year. This is possibly a signal that Congress will be asked once again in 2025 to sign a gargantuan check for Kyiv.

What does this mean for the rest of the election year? November’s presidential and congressional races already promise to be close, and many candidates will undoubtedly make the election a referendum on yet more aid to Ukraine.
