Congress Progresses On Foreign Military Aid Bills

Over the weekend, the US House of Representatives finally approved a $95 billion dollar aid package, which includes $61 billion for Ukraine, $26 billion for Israel and $8bn for the Indo-Pacific region.  In a rare show of bi-partisan support, House Speaker Mike Johnson put his position on the line by getting both support from mainstream Republicans and Democrats. What do these developments indicate about the law-making environment in US Congress? Dr. Adrian Ang of the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies weighs in.
