Wow: Ukrainian parliament votes itself a massive pay raise, compliments of U.S. taxpayers
By JD Heyes // Aug 26, 2022

American taxpayers have been assaulted this week in ways that are hard to compare.


First off, our dementia president, Joe Biden, was trotted out in front of cameras to announce an unconstitutional giveaway of at least $300 billion in the form of student loan forgiveness. According to the plan, Americans earning as much as $125,000 will have $10,000 knocked off their student loan debt after agreeing to pay it back when they signed on the dotted line to obtain the loans in the first place.

Here's the kicker, however: Both House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and then-White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that Biden doesn't have the constitutional authority to forgive any student debt because only Congress can authorize that.

Next, American taxpayers have been getting the short end of the stick for months now as the Biden regime continues to send billions of dollars to protect the borders of Ukraine (while ignoring security along the U.S.-Mexico border). And with that money, Ukrainian members of parliament have just voted themselves a massive 70 percent pay increase. reports on this outrage:

In July, members of the Ukrainian parliament decided to increase their salaries by 70 percent. It is unclear whether these additional government expenditures will be covered by international financial aid for the military.

On July 21, members of the Ukrainian parliament decided to increase their salaries by 70 percent raise. After the bill for this decision had only been submitted on July 18, the parliamentarians were able to carry out the vote unusually quickly, reported the Overton magazine. According to the magazine, this decision, which was unanimously approved by all the remaining parties, would have been possible so quickly in the absence of a lack of opposition.

Instead of 28,800 hryvnia as before, the “servants of the people”, as Vladimir Zelensky’s party is called, now earn 49,600 hryvnia per month. Since July 15, the hryvnia fell from 0.33 euros to 0.026 euros per hryvnia. This currently corresponds to around 1,300 euros. According to Overton Magazine, it was officially emphasized that “that no additional funds from the state budget or funds from international partners are used for this."

However, after Decree 7561 “Additionals to the salary of deputies are used from the state budget, which includes international financial aid."

Meantime, unemployment and homelessness are way up in Ukraine thanks to Russian shelling and destruction of urban and suburban areas, while real wages for workers fell along with tax revenue. Overton Magazine reported that there will be an economic slump “where the economy is likely to collapse by half or more and the state would need anywhere from $5-9 billion a month in foreign financial assistance to remain viable.”

This comes on the heels of reports earlier this week that Biden just authorized an additional $3 billion in aid to Ukraine, the same week he burdened tens of millions of Americans who never went to college with covering student loan debt of people they don't know.

At the same time, the Ukrainian government, led by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, once again cracked down on free speech under the guise of identifying and targeting "information terrorists" -- which sounds shockingly like Democrats in the U.S. who favor entities like the "Disinformation Governance Board" floated earlier this summer by the Biden regime's Department of Homeland Security.

Americans are not only being fleeced by this current regime but they are also being mocked and abused.
