Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY) boldly stood up to the Israel Lobby on Tuesday, telling the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) that he will not be voting for their “$14+ billion shakedown of American taxpayers” and will not be intimidated by their smear campaigns.
Massie announced Sunday that he will not be voting for the House’s $14.5 billion foreign aid package for Israel, which he noted would come on top of the $3.8 billion Congress already passed for the year.
“AIPAC always gets mad when I put America first,” Massie said, responding to the smears. “I won’t be voting for their $14+ billion shakedown of American taxpayers either. Let them know what you think by replying to their post. They are intentionally misrepresenting my intent and the resolution I voted against.”
Massie called out AIPAC for “foreign interference in our elections” in 2021 after the Israel First lobbying group ran ads against him in his district.
A recent CBS News/YouGov poll found the majority of Americans oppose sending “weapons and supplies” to Israel to aid in their war with Gaza.
The poll found the majority of Democrats and Independents opposed sending aid as well as 43% of Republicans. Nonetheless, Republicans so far appear to have only one single representative who is willing to stand up for them and vote against this screwjob (Marjorie Taylor Greene claims she’s voting no as well but we’ll have to wait and see if she follows through or caves per usual).
Despite a solid majority of Democrats opposing the aid, odds are overwhelming that the bill is going to sail right right through as the interests of Israel come before their own constituents.
