Debt limit deal imperiled by progressives who oppose funding for Israel's Iron Dome, House Republicans who don't want it raised

Republicans have said they plan to reject the funding package, which includes $28.6 billion in disaster aid — including for storm-battered red states — as well as $6.3 billion in funding for Afghan refugees and an extension of federal cash to keep the government open through Dec. 3. Democrats, eager for a messaging win, are tying that bundle to a measure that would hit pause on an approaching debt cliff through the 2022 midterms.

The bill is hitting a last-minute snag, though, with a group of House progressives threatening to vote against the bill over the $1 billion it provides for the Pentagon to help replenish Israel’s Iron Dome air defense system.
