“Nancy, can you tell us why we have all the $150 billion going to Ukraine when we have homeless on our streets in your own city?” the video shared
“Nancy, can I get some stock trading tips on how to get semi-conductors in Taiwan. Nancy … is your son involved with Hunter Biden?” the man asked.

Pelosi simply answered that it was, "For your freedom," before the man was removed from the area.
The conversation occurred as a growing number of conservatives are ready to put a stop to ongoing massive spending in Ukraine while America's own economy struggles.
"Ukraine is the new Iraq," Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene tweeted. "Our country is run by stupid warmongers that are so clueless and disconnected with what the American people want that they are literally leading us into World War 3."
"That’s why I’m introducing a resolution to find out exactly where OUR money is going," she added.

Taylor Green shared the concerns during an interview with Tucker Carlson on Fox News after President Joe Biden announced another round of funding for Ukraine of $10 billion.
Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen also visited Ukraine this week as part of announcing new financial support for the nation's resistance against Russia.
The latest heckling of Pelosi may have been inappropriate but highlighted concerns about Ukraine being given a higher priority than our own nation under the Biden administration. The issue will continue to grow in importance as the 2024 presidential primary addresses the topic during the president's reelection bid.
