February 13, 2024

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, U.S. Senator Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) issued the following statement after the Senate passed a supplemental funding package to send billions of dollars in foreign aid overseas.

“At a time when Wyoming families are suffering due to inflation directly caused by this administration’s spending spree, we cannot continue irresponsibly printing money to address crises overseas without doing anything to fix the very serious problems our own country faces including at our southern border. I remain concerned about the situations in both Israel and Ukraine, but cannot in good conscience support efforts to add $95 billion to our already staggering national debt — a debt the people of Wyoming will be forced to pay,” said Lummis.

The bill passed the Senate with a vote of 70 – 29.
