U.S. sup­port of Is­rael, Jor­dan

Vot­ing 56 for and 44 against, the Se­nate on Tues­day failed to reach 60 votes needed to end a Demo­cratic fil­i­buster against a bill that would au­tho­rize $3.3 bil­lion an­nu­ally in U.S. mil­i­tary aid to Is­rael over 10 years, im­pose Amer­i­can fi­nan­cial sanc­tions on in­di­vid­u­als and en­ti­ties do­ing busi­ness with the As­sad regime in Syria, au­tho­rize un­spec­i­fied mil­i­tary aid to Jor­dan and vow to help Jor­dan se­cure its bor­ders with Syria and Iraq. Democrats said they would de­lay the bill un­til the gov­ern­ment has been fully re­opened. A yes vote was to ad­vance the bill.
