A Republican-controlled House could shut off the spigot funding Ukraine, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) says
Even if Mr. McCarthy is just posturing, conservative factions in Congress are actively working to oppose future aid spending – buoyed by a powerful complex of outside groups that includes the Heritage Foundation, the Koch network, FreedomWorks and the Center for Renewing America.
Republicans are united on at least one position when it comes to Ukraine: there should be a thorough accounting of every dollar sent. Even Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas), the top Republican on the Foreign Affairs Committee and another vocal Ukraine supporter, says his colleagues have grumbled about the U.S. footing the bill to a greater degree than other large NATO allies, like Germany and France.
