MTG Proposes Amendment Tackling Congress Members Supporting Ukraine Aid

An amendment proposed to a supplemental funding bill for Ukraine would require members of Congress who vote “in favor” of the bill to enlist in the Ukrainian military. The amendment, introduced by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), read, “Any Member of Congress who votes in favor of this Act shall be required to conscript in the Ukrainian military.”

Defending the measure, Greene wrote on X, “I mean if you want to fund the war, why don’t you go fight in it. Show your support for Ukraine.”

Greene’s proposal comes after House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) released his plan to combine bills to pass foreign aid to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan, as well as another to provide defense measures to strengthen the United States’ “national security.”

If successful, all four bills will be combined into a single rules bill and will be brought to the Congress floor for separate votes. Whatever bills are passed will be combined into a single piece of legislation to be considered in the Senate.

A vote on the legislation would be held as soon as Saturday, as Johnson gave lawmakers 72 hours to review the legislation.

The move by Johnson was met with criticism from several Republican hardliners, among whom Greene stands tall. The Georgia lawmaker has vehemently kicked against aid to Ukraine and is poised to lead the removal of Johnson from his speakership position if he pushes the aid through.

Greene’s opposition to the Ukraine aid is based on the argument that it is tantamount to “paying for the slaughter and the murder” of Ukrainian soldiers.

“This whole thing is the most repulsive, disgusting thing happening, and the American people are the ones writing the check,” she told former White House adviser Steve Bannon on his “War Room” podcast on Friday.

“I absolutely hate everybody here that is doing this. I seriously hate them for doing this,” she added.
