SCHUMER: ‘BOTTOM LINE … WE NEED A BIPARTISAN BILL’: A showdown is looming next week when Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) plans to put President Joe Biden’s $105 billion supplemental funding request to a vote on the Senate floor.

“There are a number of things we have to do at once: deliver aid to Israel, aid to Ukraine, humanitarian assistance to help innocent victims in Gaza, and military capabilities in the Indo-Pacific,” Schumer said at a news conference yesterday. “All these national security issues are related and should move together … America doesn’t have the luxury to pick and choose national security threats that befall us. We must address all of them, all of them, because our adversaries, Russia, China, … Iran … are investing heavily in them too.”

While Schumer continues to complain about Republican insistence that the supplemental bill includes a tightening of asylum policies at the southwest border, some Democrats also want to attach strings to the bill that would dictate how Israel could spend military aid in its war against Hamas in Gaza.
