Democrats and the GOP in US sources said there were many issues on the country’s Ukraine package that needed to be addressed – including drafting the language of legislation – and that the whole process would take weeks until both There is no final vote in the House.
The possible purpose of this package is to pass this package before the Memorial Day holiday. But there are additional complications to be solved – what to do with the stopped CoVID-19 aid.
A senior aide to the Democratic House said that US President Joe Biden’s Additional request There is still a long way to go in both the houses. “There will be bilateral, bilateral talks on the supplementary request. The language should also be drafted. It will not happen immediately. “
In anticipation of further obstacles, many Republicans are already signaling that they need more information about Biden’s side before they pledge to vote on him in the Senate.
Republicans are still going through the president’s side decision for Ukraine, but Jim Rish, a senior Republican senator on the Foreign Relations Committee, said he was concerned about a clause in the package that would almost certainly cost the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Gives the option to spend 20 billion. This is not new money. This amount has already been allocated, but it was not allowed. This is an issue Republicans and Democrats have been fighting for months, and Republicans say Biden slipped into the package.
This is still preliminary, Rish said, and many Republicans are still inclined to support the package, but he noted that Republicans want to take a few more days to carefully consider what is involved.
“I have to go through the details,” said Sen. Marco Rubio, a Republican from Florida. “I’m not so sure about the money. It’s more about what you plan to give them. Do they need it now for the foreseeable future?”
Another difference is that Republicans see the high cost of humanitarian aid as potentially in the wrong direction. Republican Senator Steve Dynes from Montana, who traveled to Ukraine on vacation, told reporters that he thinks the best place to spend money is military aid.
“The war crimes that are being committed, as we speak, will not end until Ukraine wins this war. So while humanitarian aid is very important, the most important thing that Ukraine wants. “I’m not sure the White House understands that,” said Dennis.
“I want to know what we’re investing in. Between deadly aid and humanitarian aid, I want to make sure it’s really getting where it wants to go. The devil is in the details.” Ernest said.
Republican Senator Roger Wicker of Mississippi said he was satisfied with the package price.
“We need to send a strong signal that we intend for Ukraine to win this war against Vladimir Putin’s illegal war crimes,” Vicker said.
Although members on both sides acknowledge the urgent need to pass legislation, the mechanics of how it is achieved through the House and Senate are still very much in flux, with some Democrats still insisting. The money should be wrapped in a package with code 19 money. Which has been blocked on Biden’s immigration policy at Title 42.
Democrat Senator Patty Murray from Washington said “it needs to be done.”
Republicans, including Whip John Thoon, have already said that including CoVID-19 funding in the bill is a non-starter.
