Senate Passes $95 Billion Foreign Aid Package For Ukraine, Israel, Taiwan

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

As things stand today, a minority of Senate Republicans voted with Mitch McConnell to pass the $95 billion foreign aid bill for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan. He couldn’t persuade a majority of his own caucus to support it. House Speaker Mike Johnson is opposed to holding a vote on it.


“The Senate finally passed a $95 billion foreign aid package for Ukraine, Israel and the Indo-Pacific early Tuesday morning.

Why it matters: The tortured proceedings have put on display a divided Republican party, with a growing faction embracing isolationist views at odds with the GOP establishment. …

Zoom in: The package passed 70-29, with 22 Republicans supporting it. Two Democrats — Sens. Peter Welch (Vt.) and Jeff Merkley (Ore.) — opposed the bill over concerns around its aid for Israel, as did Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). …”

The bill could still pass through a discharge petition.

The fate of the bill now turns on whether a minority of House Republicans are bold enough to defy Trump and House leadership and vote with Democrats to Stand With Ukraine.


“The Senate’s overwhelming passage of a $95 billion foreign aid package Tuesday morning has backed House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) into a corner. …

What we’re watching: House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) vowed Tuesday to “use every available legislative tool” to pass funding for Ukraine, Israel and Palestinian civilians in Gaza.

The statement was widely viewed as a reference to a “discharge petition,” a once-obscure method of allowing 218 members — a bipartisan majority — to circumvent the speaker and force a House vote. …”

We will see.
