#House Speaker #MikeJohnson is plowing ahead on a #ForeignAid plan that has roiled his conference & prompted 2 #Republicans to push an effort to oust him….
But instead of the complex 4-part plan he floated this week, Johnson now intends to try to pass 5 bills — 1 each for #aid to #Ukraine, #Israel, & #IndoPacific allies, …a #GOP wish list of #ForeignPolicy priorities & a 5th…to address widespread Republican… [#border ] demands….

leadership announced that the would stay in session until Sat to consider the bills.
[good friggin luck]
The new approach is risky & is already blowing up on the speaker, who…is being threatened by … to invoke a “motion to vacate” to topple if he puts on the floor, something to which many aka consumers of [ ; & lackeys] object.

…in signs of trouble late Wed, the #House Rules Cmte failed to approve the #border #security bill because 3 #Republicans on the panel — Reps #ChipRoy, #ThomasMassie, & #RalphNorman — refused to support it, meaning the panel adjourned w/o action. Democrats have no interest in backing the #GOP border proposal.
The 3 separate bills that fund #military #aid for #Israel, #Ukraine & #Taiwan largely mirror the $95B #Senate-passed #NationalSecurity supplemental.

The #House #legislation turns a portion of the #aid, the money sent directly to #Ukraine, into a * #loan* & is endorsed by #Trump. It also includes just over $9B in #humanitarian aid for #Gaza, the #WestBank, Ukraine & other places in need, which #Democrats have demanded as a condition of any support from them.
#MikeJohnson signaled Wed evening that there would probably be an amendment to the package to strip the #HumanitarianAid, which he said he has “concerns” with.
