The US House of Representatives is set to vote on Saturday and is expected to approve a $95 billion package that includes aid for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan.

The height military aid package $60.8 billion intended to help Ukraine acquire advanced weapons systems.

The Democrats and some centrist Republicans they have been calling for months for aid to Ukraine to be rushed through, with Foreign Secretary Anthony Blinken warning that if it is delayed further, “there is a real risk it will arrive too late”.

It’s been more than two months since the Democratic-majority Senate passed a similar bill, and US leaders from Democratic President Joe Biden to top Senate Republican Mitch McConnell are calling on House Speaker Mike Johnson to bring it up. for voting.

Johnson this week chose to ignore the impeachment threats he has received and push through the bill that includes aid to Ukraine.

The four-bill package also includes funds for Israel, security assistance for Taiwan and allies in the Indo-Pacific and a measure dealing with sanctions, including a ban on Chinese social media app TikTok and the possible transfer of seized Russian assets. data to Ukraine.

Johnson structured the bills to be put on separate votes, which would be merged into one after they were passed separately, so they could be voted on by different coalitions of support without the risk of the entire deal being rejected. Each of the aid bills for the three countries is expected to pass with an overwhelming majority. The Senate is expected to pass the legislation as soon as Tuesday and send it to President Biden’s desk.

“People are watching what Congress is doing,” the White House said in a statement Friday. “Passage of this bill will send a strong message of the strength of American leadership at a pivotal time. The administration urges both houses of Congress to quickly send this supplemental funding package to the President’s office.”

A bipartisan 316-94 majority of the House on Friday voted in favor of the bill for a vote.

Some hard-line Republicans have expressed strong opposition to further aid to Ukraine, with some arguing that the US cannot afford it given its growing $34 trillion national debt. They have repeatedly raised the threat of removing Johnson, who became speaker in October after his predecessor, Kevin McCarthy, was ousted by party hardliners.
