“The Senate is at a standstill while leaders in both parties haggle over the path forward for a $95 billion aid package for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan,” Punchbowl News reports.
“As of this writing, it’s unclear whether there will be 60 votes to advance the foreign aid bill after Republicans blocked the border security supplemental. Some Republicans have said they’ll support the procedural motion no matter what, while others want guarantees from leadership about amendment votes — including some related to the border.”
“Hardline conservatives are trying to tank the process entirely, and they’re taking shots at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell over his handling of the matter.”
“Democrats, meanwhile, were apoplectic that Republicans were demanding votes on border-related amendments after having killed the bipartisan border deal.”
