The Israel Aid bill is being put up tonight seperate from anything else. The Squad is hoes mad, with the blue hair from CT giving time to Trashida and AOC to bitch about it.

A Ukraine Aid bill should be put up next.

Take away the Uniparty's excuse to bundle foreign aid with the Border by heading them off at the pass?

That way they can't scream "But foreign aid desperately needed for the conflicts, so pass this combined Amnesty-foreign aid-border bill".

More and more I'm thinking we need a Constitutional Amendment that forces the Congress to vote on individual spending bills by category (Defense, Mandated Spending, Infrastructure, Foreign Aid, etc). No omibuses, or require massive supermajorities for them, not mere majority, and also ban continuance bills, or only allow them at last budget spending up or down with no increases, not for inflation or anything else.

Squad going to have to vote no or yes (or conveniently not present) on the Israel aid bill.

There is no getting around it this time.

They already gave about $50 billion each year for 2022 and 2023 to Ukraine.

Time to wind it down and not give as much and get Europe like Germany and France to contribute more to Ukraine.

This puts Biden in a position of angering Jewish Dem donors if he vetoes it (he will), or to anger his Dem base if he signs it.

Yep! Being smart and tactical for a change.

Johnson could really be clever and get a "Bio Women in Women's Sports Only" Bill. That's another dividing line.

Hell, call it "Post COVID Women's Sport Recovery" with a few billion for College and HS Sports but put in all kinds of anti-Groomer restrictions and Bio-Women only caveats in it, let the Dems vote it down.

Only about 15-20% of the electorate is hardcore Woke.

I agree, and the $17B for Israel is too much, then again we're $34T in debt so what's another $87B (assuming $60B for the Ukraine in the Lankford Senate Bill)?

I say do 'em both or singly and get 'em up and out of the way so they can't try to bundle it with the Border.

Pass Medicare/Soc Sec too and get that off the Table. Take all their big "But whatabout..." off the table.

They WANT everything in one or two big packages, doing it singly creates a dilemma for them and takes complaints away.

It didn't pass anyway, so moot point. 14 Republicans joined the Dems in defeating it.

And Johnson and the House failed on the impeachment vote for Mayorkas yesterday too.

More failure theater.

Can no one on the Right play this game?

Republicans need to do a better job with messaging, with an adversarial and pro-Democrat mainstream media.

They need to show essentially there is an open border as the Democrats will allow up to 5000 illegal immigrants to cross the border based on the proposed law.

The Republicans need to show the entire immigration bureaucracy such as immigration judges are very lenient. Show the data (assuming it is accurate) as far as percentage of immigrants who are "caught and released into the USA".

Also they need to message like this as far as nothing stopping Biden from transferring arms to Ukraine. Read below article as far as Biden setting "the price" of foreign arms that are sold to Ukraine.

Biden could even attach an IOU to the sale if he wants to sell to Ukraine each artillery shell for more than a penny.
