$95 billion foreign aid package for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan advances in Senate

 February 12, 2024

A $95 billion foreign aid package for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan has advanced in the Senate by a vote of 67-27 despite the opposition of hard line conservatives and former President Donald Trump.

The aid package prioritizes billions of dollars in foreign aid over tackling the border crisis that has seen literal millions of illegal immigrants infiltrate the United States.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) told reporters that, "I can’t remember the last time the Senate was in session on Super Bowl Sunday, but as I’ve said all week long, we’re going to keep working on this bill until the job is done."

While Americans were enjoying the Super Bowl, the Senate was conspiring about how to send billions of dollars to multiple foreign allies while multiple domestic issues continue to fester.

The bill also earmarks $9.15 billion in humanitarian assistance to civilians in Gaza and the West Bank, which no doubt will find its way into the hands of terrorists fighting Israel.

However, the next step for this bill would be the House of Representatives, which is controlled by Republicans, meaning that the bill will likely fail without major concessions and changes.
