The Democrats continue to follow the path of the worst, totalitarian regimes in history. The Democrats won’t help Jews defend themselves but they’ll gift a nuclear weapon to the brutal Islamic Republic of Iran.
House Democrats pull $1 billion in Israel Iron Dome funding to pass measure to fund government
House leadership reportedly has to temporarily pull the funding to get enough voters from conference progressives to pass the measure.
House Democrats on Tuesday removed roughly $1 billion in funding for Israel’s Iron Dome defense system in a spending bill to keep the U.S. government fully funded through Dec. 3.
Leaders of the Democrat-controlled chamber reportedly removed the money from the so-called “continuing resolution” to get enough voters from progressives in their conference to pass the measure, according to the Jerusalem Post.
Congressional Republicans have vowed not to support the short-term spending measure, resulting in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi having to compromise with the conference’s dozens of progressives because she has only a three-seat majority.
House leadership said the Iron Dome funding will be included in an eventual bipartisan defense bill for fiscal 2022.
A spokesperson for House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Rep. Rosa DeLauro, a Connecticut Democrat, said the Iron Dome funding “will be included in the final, bipartisan and bicameral” defense funding bill later this year, according to The Hill newspaper.
