ALG Praises House Passage of Fiscally Balanced Israel Aid

Nov. 2, 2023, Fairfax, Va.–Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising the U.S. House of Representatives for approving $14.3 billion of military assistance to Israel:

“Americans for Limited Government applauds the House of Representatives for approving a $14.3 billion military aid package to Israel in the wake of the horrific Sabbath Attack by the government of Gaza (Hamas) that targeted civilians. Israel’s 9/11 was horrifying in its brutality and utter inhumanity, and the U.S. has a responsibility to support our Israeli allies.  Speaker Mike Johnson took a necessary step to protect the American taxpayer by offsetting the $14.3 billion with immediate cuts to the Internal Revenue Service, taking money that was appropriated to expand the agency and redirecting it to support Israel.  The aid package also eliminated the Biden administration’s demand that billions of dollars be provided to the Palestinian Authority and Gaza for humanitarian aid. Thankfully, the House rejected sending U.S. tax dollars to those who are perpetrating and cheering the mass slaughter of Israelis.  We urge the Senate to pass the House version of the Israel aid package and send it to President Biden for his consideration.  This targeted spending to provide needed resupply of missiles for the vaunted Iron Dome missile defense system among other items should be passed immediately with the spending offset by cuts in existing federal government programs.”
