The Status of Efforts to Resume Aiding Ukraine

Yesterday it was reported that the senate voted 67-27 to move a bill forward that includes $60.1 billion in aid that Ukraine critically needs to defend itself against Russia and that the United States critically needs to provide to Ukraine to avoid falling into isolationist ignominy and complete sycophancy to the aspiring autocrat, 91-felony count-indicted emperor of Mar-a-Lago. Now the measure must somehow achieve procedural standing and be voted on and passed by the House in spite of virulent opposition to it by the MAGA-dominated Republican caucus. As seems so often the case these days, common sense and decency will need a good measure of luck to prevail.
