Grassroots veterans organization commends Speaker Johnson’s effort to push individual votes for Israel and Ukraine aid; priorities should be considered separately
ARLINGTON, Va.—Today, Concerned Veterans for America’s (CVA) Executive Director Russ Duerstine issued the following statement in support of the Israel Security Supplemental Appropriations Act:
“The United States is right to offer supplemental assistance to Israel to support its defense in its hour of need. Decisions about supplemental funding for Israel, Ukraine, and other priorities are important and should be considered individually, especially in light of our growing and increasingly dangerous $33.7 trillion national debt.
Congress should individually weigh the impacts of key foreign policy resource allocations and their relation to core U.S. security interests, rather than lumping together aid packages that the American people have different attitudes toward.
We commend Speaker Johnson for offering Congress the opportunity to vote on funding for Israel in standalone form.”
