Chuck Schumer Promises To Put Forward Military Aid Bill for Israel, Taiwan, & Ukraine to a Vote

In a letter addressed to fellow members of the United States Senate, New York Senator Chuck Schumer promised to bring a bill to the Senate floor in early December 4 to finance military aid for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan. President Joe Biden has demanded the funding as part of a large $105 billion spending package.

“One of the most important tasks we must finish is taking up and passing a funding bill to ensure we as well as our friends and partners in Ukraine, Israel, and the Indo-Pacific region have the necessary military capabilities to confront and deter our adversaries and competitors,” Schumer stated. “That’s why I intend to bring the President’s national security supplemental package to the floor as soon as the week of December 4.”

Schumer took Republicans to task for their alleged delay in the passage of the $105 billion spending package. This military aid bill was formally requested on October 20, 2023. He said the biggest roadblock “is the insistence by our Republican colleagues on partisan border policy as a condition for vital Ukraine aid.”

The House recently passed a bill that got rid of the over $14 billion designed to finance Israel’s war in Gaza from Biden’s $105 billion spending bill request. Democrats’ rejected this budget proposal due to how it features cuts to the IRS, and Schumer has not been able to bring it to the floor for a vote in the Senate.

Despite these roadblocks, Louisiana Congressman Mike Johnson, the House’s current speaker recently said that he is “confident and optimistic” that Congress will be able to approve funding for both Israel and Ukraine. The Biden regime has called for $61 billion to bankroll the proxy war in Ukraine for another year despite Ukraine’s bungled counteroffensive. 

Johnson declared that Israel is a “top priority” for the US and indicated that Ukraine is still important but must be connected to border funding. “Ukraine is another priority. Of course, we can’t allow Vladimir Putin to march through Europe. And we understand the necessity of assisting there. What we’ve said is that if there is to be additional assistance to Ukraine — which most members of Congress believe is important — we have to also work on changing our own border policy,” he remarked.

On top of that, the Biden regime requested $7.4 billion in spending in order to ramp up the US’s military presence in the Indo-Pacific region. Of these funds, $2 billion consist of military aid that’s expected to be allocated towards Taiwan. Republican China hawks are requesting an additional $12 billion for a potential military confrontation against China. 

Schumer is the consummate establishment hack. He loves never-ending wars and trying to get the US mired in geopolitical conflicts abroad. This is the way the DC uniparty operates on foreign policy matters. 

For the US to move forward and pursue a foreign policy of peace and prosperity, it must relieve the likes of Chuck Schumer of the burden of holding higher office.
