House Passes Resolution Supporting Relationship with Israel and Abraham Accords

(April 25, 2023)

The House of Representatives voted 400-19 in favor of a resolution expressing support for the strengthening of the U.S.-Israel relationship, security assistance for Israel, and the Abraham Accords in honor of the 75th anniversary of Israel’s founding.

Eighteen Democrats and one Republican voted against the resolution: Reps. Thomas Massie (R-KY), Cori Bush (D-MO), Jared Huffman (D-CA), Summer Lee (D-PA), Betty McCollum (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Mark Pocan (D-WI), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), Chuy Garcia (D-IL), Andre Carson (D-IN), Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), Jamaal Bowman (D-NY), Hank Johnson (D-GA), Nydia Velazquez (D-NY), Mark DeSaulnier (D-CA) and Delia Ramirez (D-IL). Fifteen members did not vote.

Massie said he voted against the measure because it expressed support for security assistance to Israel, and he opposes foreign aid.
