Majorities in both chambers of Congress support sending more financial aid to Ukraine. But you’d be forgiven for thinking the opposite is true after leaders in the House and Senate stripped out around $6 billion in Ukraine aid from the bill that kept the government from shutting down late last month.
As the fighting in Ukraine drags on and another spending deadline in the United States looms, most members of Congress are considering how to get more money for the war effort across the finish line. Doing so would have been a challenge even when former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy held the gavel. Now the prospects are even murkier.
