Is Upheaval In House Coming After Passage of $60 Billion for Ukraine?

The House passed a four-bill $95 billion foreign aid package over the weekend that includes $60 billion in additional aid for Ukraine. The bill could cost House Speaker Mike Johnson his job. 

The aid package passed in a 311-112 vote with the unanimous support of Democrats and 101 Republicans voting in favor of the bill.


Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., threatened to introduce a motion to remove Johnson, R-La., from his position as speaker if he brought the funding for Ukraine to the House floor for a vote. 


“I think she's looking at the totality of what's come across the floor over the past few months, and she is expressing extreme disappointment with that,” Ryan Walker, executive vice president of Heritage Action for America, says of Greene. (The Daily Signal is the news outlet of The Heritage Foundation, of which Heritage Action is the grassroots arm.)


Greene left Washington at the end of last week without introducing the motion to vacate the speaker but said during an interview Sunday on Fox News that she still planned to try to oust Johnson. 


Mike Johnson’s speakership is over,” Greene said on “Sunday Morning Futures,” adding, “He needs to do the right thing—to resign and allow us to move forward in a controlled process. If he doesn’t do so, he will be vacated.” 


Less than one year after House Speaker Kevin McCarthy was ousted from the role, Capitol Hill is bracing for the potential of another speakership battle when Congress returns to Washington next week. 


Walker joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to explain the reason for the sharp divide in Congress over the foreign aid package and the likelihood Johnson will face removal as speaker. Walker also explains where Congress is getting the money to send to Ukraine.

  • Corey DeAngelis: School Choice and the 'Parent Revolution'

    29:52
    There’s a war being waged for America’s elementary, middle, and high school students. But the leftist agenda-driven campaign that began behind the closed doors of teachers unions and government-run schools is now out in the open and has led to a “parent revolution,” says Corey DeAngelis. The "teachers unions overplayed their hand and awakened a sleeping giant, which happens to be parents who want more of a say in their kids' education," says DeAngelis, author of “The Parent Revolution: Rescuing Your Kids from the Radicals Ruining Our Schools.”  DeAngelis—sometimes referred to as the "school choice evangelist"—dedicated his new book to "Randi Weingarten [president of the American Federation of Teachers] and the teachers unions for inadvertently doing more to advance school choice and homeschooling than anyone could have ever imagined."School choice programs, which give parents the opportunity to use their tax dollars to send their children to a private school or even to homeschool them, are restoring parents' power over their children’s education. Already, states across America are embracing school choice. "We now have 11 states with universal school choice," DeAngelis says, adding the programs are a fulfillment of the late Nobel Prize-winning economist "Milton Friedman's vision for all families" to have choice over their children's education.DeAngelis, a senior fellow at the American Federation for Children and a visiting fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, and Jason Bedrick, a research fellow in the Center for Education Policy at The Heritage Foundation, join “The Daily Signal Podcast” to discuss why school choice programs are a rising tide that will lift all of America’s education system. (Heritage founded the Daily Signal in 2014.)Enjoy the show!
