Here Are The Two Republicans That Voted Against $14.3 Billion Israel Aid Bill

The House of Representatives approved sending $14.3 billion in federal aid dollars to Israel in a 226 to 196 vote on Thursday, with 12 Democrats joining Republicans to pass it.

Under the bill brought by House Republicans, that funding will be reallocated from money that was meant for the IRS in President Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act.

Just two Republicans voted against the bill — Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., and Thomas Massie, R-Ky.

Among the Democrats who voted in favor of it are Reps. Josh Gottheimer, D-N.J.; Jared Moskowitz, D-Fla.; Jared Golden, D-Maine; Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, D-Fla.; and Lois Frankel, D-Fla.

Republicans celebrated the bill’s passage, with Republican Policy Committee Chairman Gary Palmer, R-Ala., lauding the aid to a major ally and the defunding of Biden’s IRS.

“Israel has every right defend itself from the brutal attacks we have been witnessing over the past month,” Palmer told Fox News Digital.

“With this piece of legislation, we are helping an ally in need while also cutting funding from Joe Biden’s weaponized IRS. These funds are better used supporting Israel than being used by IRS agents to audit middle class Americans,” he said.

Israel has been in open war with Hamas since last month when militants killed over a thousand Israelis in a surprise attack on villages throughout the southern part of the country.

Rep. Randy Feenstra, R-Iowa, also highlighted the fact that more than two dozen of those slaughtered were also American citizens.

“Hamas terrorists senselessly murdered innocent Americans and Israelis with no remorse whatsoever. As our strongest ally in the Middle East, we must do everything in our power to support Israel and help them completely defeat and destroy Hamas,” he told Fox News Digital of the bill’s passage.

Military veteran Rep. John James, R-Mich., told Fox News Digital, “This assistance is critical to Israel’s efforts to restore peace and stand as a haven of democracy for our Jewish brothers and sisters.”

The bill faces an uncertain future in the Senate, however, where Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., called it a “joke” on Thursday morning.

“It still mystifies me that at a moment when the world is in crisis, at a time when we need to help Israel respond to Hamas, the House GOP thought it was a good idea to tie Israel aid to a hard right proposal that will raise the deficit and is totally, totally partisan,” Schumer said.

Senate leaders have been pushing for an Israel aid package to also include money for Ukraine, which Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., said earlier would be in a combined package with U.S. border security measures down the line.

Biden had asked Congress for $106 billion in supplemental funding for a package that covers Ukraine, Israel, Taiwan, the U.S. border and various humanitarian causes.

The White House on Thursday said that Biden would veto a standalone Israel aid bill if it came to his desk.

The Office of Management and Budget said of the legislation, “This bill is bad for Israel, for the Middle East region, and for our own national security.”

    If Biden vetos the stand alone bill for aid to Israel, we all know whose side he is on, and it isn’t Israel’s! He would be stabbing Israel in the back( he already is) and funding the terrorists in Gaza! Obama wants Israel destroyed, along with our country, so the islamists can take over our country! What really gets me is all the fags standing by the Palestinians! They are too stupid to understand that Islam sees them as an abomination that must be destroyed! In the Muslim countries, they are bound, smashed in the face , and taken to the roof of the highest building and thrown off, face first to their death. Dumb asses! Why do you think the Kenyan fag is in our country, where he is safe? HE is an islamist, always has been. He lies about bieng a Christian to pull the wool over the eyes of stupid people who believe him! Wake the hell up people! You are bieng duped!

    Good! But it’s sad that only TWO voted to not fund genocide.

  • Patty says:

    I want to know WHY MTG and her cohort voted against this funding for Israel! Is she a secret supporter of Hamas? She needs to answer for this! She jacks her jaws one way, then goes the opposite way. Why? What is her motivation? Trying to get her name out there more? She just lost my support! I don’t side with Double dealers, we have rough of them on the demonrat side. And for traitor Schumer to say it is a “ joke”, HE is the biggest joke on Capitol Hill, a traitor to the Jewish people! Guess he sides with Hamas as well! They need to explain themselves, to OUR satisfaction! We should vote them out!!! We do not need traitors in our government. The “ squad” is doing enough damage as it is. All those republicans who voted against censoring Tlaib need to explain themselves as well. They sided with that anti American, anti semitic bitch against US! Traitors all!!!! We will not forget their names!!!!!!

    In case no one noticed, our country is falling apart. The murder rate is so high, it is total oblivion. I stand with Israel for those barbaric people killing civilians for no good reason, but I also would like for our country to close our damn Borders. We are opened for all kinds of invasions. The Politicians do not seem to care about this very serious issue. The hell with everything else, just get our Borders closed. You can not blame it totally on Biden when all of you allow this to go on. Are you all afraid of all the enemies in the deep State.
