Twelve Democrats joined a majority of House Republicans to vote in favor of a $14.3 billion aid package to Israel amid its conflict with the Palestinian militant group Hamas Thursday.
The package, connected with cuts to IRS funding, has faced opposition from the White House, which sent its own $100 billion request to Congress for aid for Israel as well as Ukraine a few weeks ago. Despite the distaste for the $14.3 billion package from the top, the Senate and even the House Democratic Whip and a decent chunk of Democrats sided with their colleagues across the aisle to vote for it.
Here are the Democrats who voted for the package passed by the House Thursday:
Rep. Angie Craig (D-Minn.)
Rep. Don Davis (D-N.C.)
In a statement posted to X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, Davis said despite condemning “House leaders for unprecedentedly tying conditional funds to security assistance, we must continue to stand with our ally, Israel, and simultaneously call for the humane conduct of war consistent with international law.”
Rep. Lois Frankel (D-Fla.)
“The United States has a moral duty and national security urgency to aid Israel in defending herself,” Frankel said in an apparent statement on her vote on X. “Make no mistake, Hamas terrorists are out to destroy Israel and kill all Jews. We must send an unequivocal message to the world that we stand with Israel.”
Rep. Jared Golden (D-Maine.)
Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.)
Rep. Greg Landsman (D-Ohio)
Rep. Jared Moskowitz (D-Fla.)
In an interview with The Hill after the vote, Moskowitz said the bill was designed to put Democrats in a sticky situation.
“[D]on’t listen to me, the [National Republican Congressional Committee] put out a tweet… within moments of the bill being dropped, that said ‘Democrats are gonna have to choose between the IRS and Israel,’” Moskowitz said. “That’s the mailer they wanna [send] out. That’s the trap that the NRCC is doing.”
Rep. Darren Soto (D-Fla.)
Rep. Haley Stevens (D-Mich.)
Rep. Juan Vargas (D-Calif.)
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.)
Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.)
