Speaker Johnson: House ‘Certainly’ Won’t Vote on Senate's Ukraine Funding Plan – EVOL

Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) has asserted that the U.S. House will not be voting on the Senate’s plan for funding Ukraine’s endless war with Russia.

The odds of the Senate’s $95 billion foreign aid package becoming law were nearly eliminated this week when Johnson shot it down.

Johnson stated in a hallway on Capitol Hill that the House is going to ignore the bill that the Senate enacted before dawn on Tuesday.

Senators passed the bill following an all-night session in favor of concentrating on the approaching funding deadlines, as Breitbart News reported.

“I certainly don’t right now,” Johnson told Punchbowl News when asked if he sees a scenario in which he would put the bill on the floor for a vote.

“We’re dealing with the appropriations process.

“We have immediate deadlines upon us in that.

“That’s where the attention of the House is in this moment.”

Late on Monday before the vote, Johnson said that the Senate was wasting its time working on a foreign aid package without first taking the steps needed to secure the border.

“America deserves better than the Senate’s status quo,” Johnson stated.

“History settles every account,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said
