Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) opposes President Biden's request for $105 billion in foreign aid, particularly the $3.5 billion for Gaza and $60 billion for Ukraine. He criticizes it as a "slush fund" and objects to spending on Gazans, retirement pensions for Ukrainian government employees, and services for illegal aliens in the US.
