From the video above:
Stein: You want America to send more money to Ukraine…what about this homeless man…”My wife’s boyfriend,” don’t you think he needs help?
Protester: This is a rally in support of Ukraine I attended.
Stein: What about the homeless people right here in America? Don’t you think $100 billion dollars to Ukraine is a lot?
Protester: In this case, I’m specifically asking this of Congress. Are you asking Congress for this?
Stein: Yeah I think they should help the homeless instead of giving hundreds of billions of dollars to Ukraine.
According to a report from HUD, there are over 500,000 homeless people in America.
This doesn’t count the millions of Americans struggling under Biden’s economy who are not homeless.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today released its 2022 Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR) Part 1 to Congress. The report found 582,462 people were experiencing homelessness on a single night in January 2022. COVID-19 and its economic impacts could have led to significant increases in homelessness, however investments, partnerships and government agency outreach resulted in only a .3% increase in the number of people experiencing homelessness from 2020 to 2022. The Biden-Harris Administration intends to not only stop but reverse the post-2016 trend of rising homelessness and reduce it 25% by 2025, as stated in All In, The Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness, which was released today by the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness. Compared with 2020, homelessness among people in shelters declined by 1.6%, while homelessness among people in unsheltered settings increased by 3.4%. The rate of overall homelessness due in large part to a robust federal response that prevented evictions through Emergency Rental Assistance distributed to more than three million households, expanded resources for vulnerable families through the Child Tax Credit and provided other financial transfers through stimulus.
Rather than helping these people, billions were sent to Ukraine by the Biden administration and Congress in 2022.
In 2022, the Biden administration and the U.S. Congress have directed nearly $50 billion in assistance to Ukraine, which includes humanitarian, financial, and military support, according to the Kiel Institute for the World Economy, a German research institute. The historic sums are helping a broad set of Ukrainian people and institutions, including refugees, law enforcement, and independent radio broadcasters, though most of the aid has been military-related. Dozens of other countries, including most members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the European Union, are also providing large aid packages to Ukraine.
Why is the government looking out for Ukraine but not our own people?
