As a government shutdown nears, the Pentagon announced that they will continue operations in Ukraine if lawmakers cannot agree on a funding package by the Sept. 30 deadline, per Politico.

This has outraged Americans, most of whom oppose sending more aid to Ukraine, according to a recent CNN poll.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene reacted to the news on X, stating, “Well this just says it all doesn’t it..”

Journalist Nick Sortor said, “This means tens of billions will continue flowing into Ukraine regardless. Why is that even legal?”

Political commentator Gunther Eagleman wrote, “Zelensky over senior citizens. The government hates us.”

Podcast hosts, the Hodgetwins, noted, “So Ukraine gets funded during a government shutdown but Americans don’t? WTF.”

Financial analyst Jeff Carlson said, “The federal government can be shut down but the Ukraine laundromat still gets uninterrupted funding. Insane times.”

Rep. Tim Burchette, R-Tenn., declared, “We need leaders that don’t bow down to the WAR PIMPS at the Pentagon.”

Former Michigan House Representative, Justin Amash, wrote, “Even if Congress doesn’t appropriate money, the Pentagon will keep funding Ukraine.”

“As I’ve said, we do not have a representative government. We have not had one for a while,” he went on. 

“We have an oligarchy with the ornamentation of representative government,” he concluded.
