House Speaker Mike Johnson presents plan for separate votes on aid for Israel and Ukraine after months of delay and GOP divisions

House Speaker Mike Johnson is pushing for separate votes on aid for Israel and Ukraine after facing pressure from both sides of the aisle. The plan aims to address funding for the two countries as well as Taiwan and other national security priorities. Johnson's move comes after months of delay and division within the GOP, with conservatives demanding tougher border security measures in exchange for Ukraine aid. The strategy involves putting forward four distinct bills for each aspect of the aid package, allowing lawmakers to vote on each measure independently.
