The Democrats in the House have given the mainstream Democrats. Otherwise known as who hate Israel, but they absolutely love the terrorists.
Nancy Pelosi surrenders to the radicals and she pilled the $1 billion dollars set aside in the spending bill to help pay for the Iron Dome that shot down so many Hamas’ missiles. This is a purely defensive weapon. So why would they want the money pulled? They probably want more missiles hitting the civilian population in Israel.
Several progressives threatened to vote against the massive spending boondoggle the Democrats are trying to push through unless the money for the Iron Dome was not rescinded.
The Democrats could only afford to lose three votes if they hope to pass the spending bill.
Therefore, they were able to force Pelosi into canceling the money. Democrats have convinced themselves that if they don’t pass this bill, the voters will turn away from them.
Besides, the Democrats do not even try to hide their hatred of Israel anymore because they know American Jews don’t care if their party hates them. Maybe it’s because the missiles never rain down upon their heads.
The bill is already in trouble in the Senate because it would require a huge increase in the debt limit. But, Republicans are vowing to vote down an increase in the debt limit until Democrats cut their massive spending practices and we know that will never happen.
Progressives that fought the funding to Israel, including Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) said they would vote against the bill.

If either Democrats in the House or Republicans in the Senate decline to pass the continuing resolution, the government will shut down on Oct. 6. If the government shuts down, non-essential government employees will be furloughed and national park services and other federally managed agencies will be temporarily closed. The last government shutdown occurred in December 2018 under President Donald Trump and lasted for 35 days, the longest in U.S. history.
More important than a potential shutdown is the debt limit. Failure to increase the debt limit — the amount of money the government is allowed to borrow to cover its payments — would potentially mean Congress would be unable to make its interest payments on the debt. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has warned that failure to make the debt payment could “precipitate a historic financial crisis” and risk “widespread economic catastrophe.”
