Speaker Johnson Plans On Putting Bill Gifting BILLIONS To Ukraine To Floor Vote

Last month, the Senate approved a $95 billion bill intended to fund Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan.

House Speaker Johnson held the bill back from a vote in the House.

It’s now been reported that the Speaker plans to call a vote for the bill after congressional members return from Easter break.

RINOs are once again going to be lining up with Democrats to give tax-payer money to Ukraine.

Johnson’s approval took a big hit with many Republicans after his role in the recent stop-gap bill being passed.

Texas Congressman Chip Roy has been especially vocal about his disappointment in Speaker Johnson’s leadership.

Perhaps it’s not simply poor leadership that’s to blame here.

Mike Johnson came into his new position with lukewarm support at best from many congressional Republicans.

His track record so far isn’t strengthening his future as Speaker.

The New York Post has more on the Speaker’s plans to send billions to Ukraine:

House Speaker Mike Johnson is expected to put a bill providing additional aid to Ukraine up for a floor vote when Congress returns following its spring recess next month, sources on Capitol Hill told The Post — with Democrats offering to shield him from an effort by a member of his own conference to oust him.

The Senate passed a $95 billion bill to fund Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan last month, but Johnson (R-La.) had withheld the measure from a House vote until other legislation to fund the government through Sept. 30 was approved this past Friday.

More Republicans opposed than supported the final tranche of that federal funding for fiscal year 2024 — and far-right Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) filed a motion to vacate Johnson’s speakership in protest.

But despite the threat to Johnson’s power, the House speaker will forge ahead with a separate bill to provide military assistance to Ukraine once the chamber is back in session April 9.

Greene said Friday she had support from other House Republicans to file the motion to vacate but had no “timeline” for an eventual vote.

“I filed this motion to vacate but I haven’t called it,” she told Fox News on Sunday. “This may take weeks, it may take months, it may not even happen until next Congress. But Speaker Johnson cannot remain as Speaker of the House.”

One Hill source suggested that passing Ukraine aid after the lower chamber’s Easter recess could trigger the motion — and added that some members had already been discussing potential replacements for Johnson.
