Conservatives elect Republicans to stand up to the Democrat Party agenda.
Some members of the GOP didn’t get that memo.
And now Joe Biden will be grinning from ear to ear when he sees what one Republican just proposed.
South Carolina Congressman Joe Wilson became a household name when he shouted “you lie” at Barack Obama when Obama delivered a joint address to Congress in the midst of the Obamacare debate.
Wilson accused Obama of lying when during a portion of the speech Obama claimed his socialist healthcare scheme would not direct any money to illegal aliens.
Wilson later issued a groveling statement of apology, which Obama accepted.
Now Wilson is making headlines for all the wrong reasons.
Conservatives grew enraged during the debate over the $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill when RINO Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell falsely claimed securing $45 billion for Ukraine was every Republicans’ number one priority.
GOP voters want their elected officials to fight to secure America’s border before worrying about the borders of far away lands.
Now Joe Wilson is proving that it’s not just Mitch McConnell and Senate RINOs who are tone deaf and out of touch with voters.
Wilson introduced a resolution ordering the Fine Arts Board to secure a bust of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to display in the U.S. House of Representatives.
H. Res. 10 reads:
. . . the Fine Arts Board to obtain a bust of the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, for display in the House of Representatives wing of the United States Capitol.
Resolved, That the House of Representatives directs the Fine Arts Board to obtain a bust of the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, for display in a suitable, permanent location in the House of Representatives wing of the United States Capitol.
Americans already sacrificed by forking over $100 billion in borrowed money to Ukraine at a time of runaway inflation.
When Zelensky traveled to Washington, D.C. to speak before Congress he disrespected America by showing up dressed like a homeless bum and ungratefully demanded Americans send even more money to Ukraine.
Wilson’s slavish support for Zelensky and Joe Biden’s proxy war with Russia is out of step with Republican voters.
A new poll found a majority of Republicans oppose new funding for Ukraine.
“A new CBS News/YouGov poll this week — the first to test the issue since Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky spoke before Congress in December — is the latest to illustrate that drift. And despite Zelensky’s plea for American resolve, it shows that a slight majority of Republicans — 52 percent to 48 percent — want their member of Congress to oppose further Ukraine funding,” The Washington Post reports.
The new Congress will eventually face a fight over funding for Biden’s war over Ukraine.
Will Joe Wilson eventually see that his voters want him to end the blank check for this reckless conflict that even Joe Biden says presents the greatest risk of nuclear Armageddon since the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis?
