Separate bills for billions in foreign aid for Israel and Ukraine not a done deal in GOP-led House | 30 Oct 2023 | Newly elected House Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., has made clear he'll propose separate spending bills this week for billions in assistance to both Ukraine and Israel but his conference isn't in full support of the plan. The decision marks his first big move since becoming speaker last week and it's already drawing criticism from some in his own party who are not on board with spending more money on foreign wars. The proposal also appears to be facing bipartisan headwinds in the Senate, given that Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer have expressed support for providing such funding as one package.
