Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene isn’t having it. Furious over the extravagant lavishing of funds on Ukraine, she recently took to the floor of Congress to demand that an audit account for all of the billions of dollars that have been sent to the embattled nation.
Watch her do so here:
I’m calling for an audit of every single penny that has been sent to Ukraine.
This must be done as soon as possible for the American people.
Taxpayers deserve transparency and they deserve to see where their money is going. pic.twitter.com/WKg7YuPfFI

As you can hear in the video, Greene begins by ripping into how the money our government has spent is being spent on a nation other than ours to defend its border as ours remains open to invasion, saying:
We’ve watched 10s of billions of dollars be sent to defend another nation’s border that is not our own. Every single day our border is invaded by people from foreign lands, and also by drugs. Over 300 People are dying every single day. Americans are dying every single day from fentanyl poisoning.
Continuing, she went on to blame Biden for that state of things, saying that the Biden Regime and feckless Congress have done nothing to defend America’s border while lavishing billions on Ukraine to defend its border, saying:
Yet the Biden administration in this Congress has not done anything to protect our nation’s border and the American people. Just to remind everyone, the building that we’re standing in the federal government and everyone’s paychecks here is paid by the American taxpayers.
She then took the stance of a tribune, standing up for the American taxpayer and saying that taxpayers deserve accountability and insight into what their money is being spent on. In her words:
And the American taxpayers and the American people deserve to have a secure border and deserve the protection of the federal government from the Mexican cartels that funnel drugs into America to kill Americans.
I’m calling for an audit of every single penny that has been sent to Ukraine, including aid money, and any other monies that have been given to the Ukrainian government to defend their national security while our national security has been ignored.
This must be done. It has to be done as soon as possible for the American people. They deserve transparency and they deserve to see where their money is going.
The comments of Rep. MTG’s videos were full of hate from the left, with critics of the firebrand rep saying:
If Pearl Harbor were to happen today, you would be on the side of the Japanese.
Raise your hand if you remember when Donald Trump was Impeached for trying to extort Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy?🤚🤚
Fine. Zelensky DOES account for every penny. There’s already regular audits and if you did your job you’d know this. #MarjorieNaziGreene
Keep yacking Barge. The more you yack the more Republicans lose ground AND VOTERS. There’s not much you can do in the next 2 yrs but bore & annoy us. Then poof you’ll be gone.
So Greene got lots of hate for her stance. However, Greene did not call for aid to Ukraine be cut off, only for it to be accounted for and audited to ensure that it is spent responsibly.
