House Republicans Continue Their Self-Destruction
Enough Florida House congressional Republicans voted against a stand-alone Israel funding bill to strike the measure down on Tuesday.
Republicans got what they wanted—a freestanding bill to help fund Israel—but because the bill would increase the overall debt, four Florida Republicans voted against the funding.
What's worse, the highly-anticipated House impeachment vote of Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas also failed.
Republicans miscalculated and failed to pass the measure by one vote.
All is not lost because while the measure crashed and burned, it lived to get a vote on another day.
The vote could come down as early as today.
House Majority Leader Steve Scalise would have been the deciding vote but was not available because he was receiving cancer treatment.
Rep. Scalise is rumored to be traveling to Capitol Hill Wednesday morning to help impeach Mayorkas.
