NBC reports that Office of Management and Budget Director Shalanda Young told legislators that the U.S. is “out of money — and nearly out of time” for supporting Ukraine.

I want to be clear: without congressional action, by the end of the year we will run out of resources to procure more weapons and equipment for Ukraine and to provide equipment from U.S. military stocks, Shalanda Young, Office of Management and Budget Director, via NBC.

There is no magical pot of funding available to meet this moment, Shalanda Young, Office of Management and Budget Director, via NBC.

According to Young, failing to provide aid would , “kneecap Ukraine on the battlefield, not only putting at risk the gains Ukraine has made, but increasing the likelihood of Russian military victories.”.

Young reportedly urged congressional leaders to approve the Biden administration's supplemental spending request.

.

I must stress that helping Ukraine defend itself and secure its future as a sovereign, democratic, independent, and prosperous nation advances our national security interests, Shalanda Young, Office of Management and Budget Director, via NBC.

It prevents larger conflict in the region that could involve NATO and put U.S. forces in harm’s way and deters future aggression, making us all safer, Shalanda Young, Office of Management and Budget Director, via NBC.

Young's letter to Congress comes amid a deadlock among lawmakers over ongoing U.S. support for both Ukraine and Israel.

NBC reports that GOP legislators have looked to leverage approving foreign aid for the enactment of tougher U.S. immigration policy at the nation's southern border.
