Who misplaces $6.2 billion?
Apparently, the government does.
Pentagon spokesperson Sabrina Singh told reporters on Tuesday that an accounting error resulted in a $6.2 billion overestimation of the value of weapons being sent to Ukraine over the last two years.
“Once we discovered this misvaluation, the comptroller reissued guidance on March 31 clarifying how to value equipment in line with the financial management regulation and DOD policy to ensure we use the most accurate of accounting methods,” Singh said at the podium on Tuesday.
“We have confirmed that for FY 23 the final calculation is $3.6 billion, and for FY 22 it is $2.6 billion for a combined total of $6.2 billion,” she added.
Rather than use the money for Americans, the Pentagon will be keeping the money as an extra stash to support Ukraine’s counteroffensive against Russia.
Since the war began, the Biden administration and the U.S. Congress have directed more than $75 billion in military, humanitarian, and financial aid to Ukraine.
Chad Prather, like many other taxpayers, isn’t thrilled by the news.
“$6.2 billion. That’s your money, by the way,” Prather says.
“Who hasn’t misplaced $6 billion every now and then, you know?” asks Prather’s producer.
Prather, while agitated, also finds some humor in the situation.
“I wonder where I can find me one of them accounting errors. You won’t see my white a** again, I’ll be out doing submarine s**t,” he says, laughing.
“Listen guys, we got a discount here on this war. No, we’re gonna’ make sure they get that too,” Prather adds.
