Here Is the Full Roster of Senate Republicans Aiming to Block the Uniparty Bill

A coalition of Senate Republicans has firmly positioned themselves against a controversial piece of legislation spearheaded by Senator James Lankford (R-OK).

The bill, developed in collaboration with Senators Krysten Sinema (I-AZ) and Chris Murphy (D-CT), has ignited a firestorm of criticism from conservative ranks, as it failed to adequately secure the U.S. southern border while allocating excessive funds to foreign aid.

The comprehensive $118.28 billion national security supplemental package bill, totaling $118.28 billion, allocates a staggering $60.06 billion to Ukraine in response to Russia’s aggressive military actions.

In contrast, U.S. border security efforts are earmarked to receive $20.23 billion.

According to Democrat Senator Patty Murray, the $118.28 billion national security supplemental package includes:

  • $60.06 billion to support Ukraine as it fights back against Putin’s bloody invasion and protects its people and sovereignty.
  • $14.1 billion in security assistance for Israel.
  • $2.44 billion to support operations in the U.S. Central Command and address combat expenditures related to conflict in the Red Sea.
  • $10 billion in humanitarian assistance to provide food, water, shelter, medical care, and other essential services to civilians in Gaza and the West Bank, Ukraine, and other populations caught in conflict zones across the globe.
  • $4.83 billion to support key regional partners in the Indo-Pacific and deter aggression by the Chinese government.
  • $2.33 billion to continue support for Ukrainians displaced by Putin’s war of aggression and other refugees fleeing persecution.
  • The bipartisan border policy changes negotiated by Senators Chris Murphy (D-CT), Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ), and James Lankford (R-OK).
  • $20.23 billion to address existing operational needs and expand capabilities at our nation’s borders, resource the new border policies included in the package, and help stop the flow of fentanyl and other narcotics.
  • The Fentanyl Eradication and Narcotics Deterrence (FEND) Off Fentanyl Act.
  • $400 million for the Nonprofit Security Grant Program to help nonprofits and places of worship make security enhancements.

The bill will also:

  • If, over a week, the average number of people showing up at the border without the right to enter is between 4,000 and 5,000 each day, the government can decide to use this special tool.
  • If the average number goes above 5,000 people per day, then the government has to use it.
  • Also, if on any single day more than 8,500 people show up without permission, the government must use this tool right away.
  • But there’s an exception: kids who come to the border alone from countries that are not next to the US don’t count in these numbers.
  • Bill will also give immediate work authorization to “asylum seeker”

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has issued an ultimatum, suggesting that failure to pass the bill could lead to American involvement in war, a claim that has been met with criticism, especially given that Ukraine is not a NATO member and therefore not under U.S. protection.

While RINO Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is reportedly in favor of the bill, a cohort of Republican senators are stepping forward in opposition, determined to block the ‘uniparty bill.’

Below is the full list of these senators who are publicly committing to oppose the bill, so far:

  1. Sen. Bill Hagerty (R-TN)
  2. Sen. Eric Schmitt (R-MO)
  3. Sen. JD Vance (R-OH)
  4. Sen. Jim Risch (R-ID)
  5. Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO)
  6. Sen. Katie Boyd Britt (R-AL)
  7. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)
  8. Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN)
  9. Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT)
  10. Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN)
  11. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)
  12. Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL)
  13. Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS)
  14. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI)
  15. Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT)
  16. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)
  17. Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR)
  18. Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL)
  19. Sen. Ted Budd (R-NC) just announced his opposition to the bill

The Republican opposition appears unified in its stance against the uniparty bill, signaling tough negotiations ahead as the legislation makes its way through the Senate.

    We shouldn’t give Ukraine a dime. We have given them too much money, artillery, etc. if they need food, we should send them some. We are paying for their salaries. Zelensky bought two new yachts in 2023 with our money. God only know what else or how much money he’s making off of us. He came here asking for more money because we don’t need to fix our roadways, and have enough money. etc. is why we had to kick our veterans, elderly out of their living space for people that are here illegally. We can’t afford to take care of American people. How about we send these immigrants to the Ukraine. He literally made me sick with his speech. Zelensky was so ungrateful for what he’s already gotten. Then he criticized us. Screw him. There is a lot of shady business going on and I am sick of being lied too. Whatever happened to letting American people vote on these issues.

    Sorry I’m on a rant. So tired of this administration bleed the American people dry.

  • Gods Daughter says:

    Good we need more to oppose this bill that favors more illegals coming in and aid to foreign nations than to many who are in great need in our own nation.

  • Leslie says:

    I am so sick of funding Ukraine!!!!!! It just gets funneled right back to Biden. Why is this shit allowed to just keep going on?! Biden should have been impeached a dozen times over again by now.

    Why does unaccompanied children get a free pass? They have relatives in the country that they came from, send them back. If they stay in this country, most will grow up to become gang members or become petty criminals and be a burden on the taxpayer for the rest of their life. They got to this country on their own, let them go back on their own.

    Glad to see both my senators (FL) on the never amnesty list.
    Lankford and the rest of the RINO’s in the congress should be drummed out on a rail.
