Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) expressed optimism on Sunday about the House overcoming its policy divisions, citing bipartisan support for a long-awaited foreign aid bill passed over the weekend.

In an interview on NewsNation’s “The Hill Sunday,” Bennet highlighted the importance of the House passing aid packages for both Israel and Ukraine with overwhelming support, signaling a potential shift towards unity. He emphasized the importance of reaffirming America’s democratic role globally, especially amongst ongoing challenges.

The comprehensive package, approved in four separate votes on Saturday, allocates $61 billion for Ukraine, $26 billion for Israel and global humanitarian assistance, $8 billion for Indo-Pacific allies, and includes additional national security measures such as a potential TikTok ban.

The bill’s passage comes after months of deadlock and sharp disagreements among lawmakers regarding U.S. funding priorities.

Bennet expressed hope that the bill’s approval signifies the end of divisive gridlock and a return to bipartisan cooperation in advancing crucial legislation. He stressed the detrimental impact of internal divisions on America’s global standing and urged a renewed commitment to assertive American leadership.

Rep. Glenn Ivey (D-Md.), speaking earlier on the same program, echoed Bennet’s optimism, suggesting that the successful passage of the foreign aid bill could bolster Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) in the midst of internal party challenges.

He highlighted recent bipartisan achievements, including the passage of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, as positive indicators of potential collaboration moving forward.
