On Monday, Republican lawmakers presented the Israel Security Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2024 to fund US ally Israel in its war on Hamas.

The proposed legislation would provide $14.3 billion from IRS funding in the Inflation “Reduction” Act passed by Democrats as a means to finance the war fund.

While this proposal could be seen as beneficial for both sides, Democrats will likely reject the plan due to their own reservations about utilizing IRS funds for conservative causes.

Reuters has more on the GOP plan.

U.S. House of Representatives Republicans on Monday introduced a plan to provide $14.3 billion in aid to Israel by cutting funding for the Internal Revenue Service, setting up a showdown with Democrats who control the Senate.

In one of the first major policy actions under new House Speaker Mike Johnson, House Republicans unveiled a standalone supplemental spending bill only for Israel, despite Democratic President Joe Biden’s request for a $106 billion package that would include aid for Israel, Ukraine and border security.

Johnson, who voted against aid for Ukraine before he was elected House speaker last week, had said he wanted aid to Israel and Ukraine to be handled separately. He has said he wants more accountability for money that has been sent to the Kyiv government as it fights Russian invaders.

“Israel is a separate matter,” Johnson said in an interview on Fox News last week, describing his desire to “bifurcate” the Ukraine and Israel funding issues.

Johnson has said bolstering support for Israel should top the U.S. national security agenda in the aftermath of the Oct. 7 attack by Hamas militants that killed more than 1,400 people and saw more than 200 others taken hostage.

For at least a decade now, the IRS has been targeting the political opponents of the radical left.

Despite this apparent misconduct, no criminal charges were brought and no disciplinary action was taken against those responsible.
