A bill to provide monetary aid to Israel amid its war against Hamas was passed by the House on Nov. 2.
The move is likely to "clash with the Democratic-led Senate," CNN reports.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer referred
to the bill as a "deeply flawed proposal.".
Democrats are upset that the bill doesn't include
aid for Ukraine and would cut IRS funding.

According to the Congressional Budget Office,
cuts to IRS funding would increase the deficit and lose about $26.8 billion in revenue over a decade.
The hypocrisy here is that by cutting
funding to go after tax cheats, (it) will
actually explode the deficit by billions
and billions of dollars. What a joke, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, via statement.
We will work together on our own bipartisan
emergency aid package that includes aid to
Israel, Ukraine, competition with the Chinese
government and humanitarian aid to Gaza, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, via statement.

New House Speaker Mike Johnson said he's committed to passing a bill to help Ukraine after dealing with Israel first, but it would need to include border security provisions.
Ukraine will come in short order, it will come
next. And you’ve heard me say that we want
to pair border security with Ukraine … If we’re
going to take care of a border in Ukraine, we
need to take care of America’s border as well, House Speaker Mike Johnson, via statement
