Israel’s war against Hamas shows no signs of ending quickly. Thousands have been killed, and there is widespread destruction in Gaza.

President Biden calls on Congress to approve $14 billion to help Israel, $9 billion in humanitarian aid for Israel, Gaza and Ukraine, all of it part of a larger package.

Host Jim Niedelman returns with former Scott County Democratic Party Chair Elesha Gayman and former Iowa State Representative David Millage, a Republican.

“I think Republicans need to stop playing games with the IRS and give the money to Ukraine and Israel,” Millage said.

“It’s just completely unacceptable to see the level of devastation that’s happening,” Gayman said.
