Democratic Sen. John Fetterman showed his frustration towards Republican Sen. Rand Paul’s filibuster of a spending bill for Ukraine.

The Senate approved a $95 billion foreign-aid package with $60.1 billion allocated for Ukraine. The package was delayed by the filibuster.

Sen. Fetterman said, “We’re only here because of just one [expletive].”

“And he decides that the rest of all of our schedules and our lives and — and holding up this bill to the — getting to the House — for all of this aid — it’s incredibly frustrating. And there’s no work being done. It’s just bad performance art,” he continued.

Sen. Paul said, “The reason for the talking filibuster is not that we’re going to win. They have the votes to win.”

“We’re causing them to ultimately expend seven days. We’ve made them be here on the weekend if they want to take our money and ship it to another country. The punishment we can inflict is we keep them here on the weekend; we keep them from campaigning; we keep them from fundraising,” continued the Kentucky Republican.
