(TheAntiMedia) Did your state representatives vote ‘Yes’ on the bill for Obama to send weapons to Ukraine?

It’s a bill authorizing Obama to supply weapons to the bankrupt Ukrainian Government to exterminate (and/or drive out into neighboring Russia) the people in the areas of Ukraine’s southeast that had voted 90% for the Ukrainian President, Viktor Yanukovych, whom Obama overthrew in a bloody coup in February 2014; but, of course, that’s not how it’s worded.

Here is how it’s worded:
