Democrats want to boost Biden’s Ukraine aid plan to nearly $40 billion

Democrats in Congress are preparing a plan that would boost the $33 billion Ukraine aid package requested by President Joe Biden to nearly $40 billion.

In what would be a setback for Biden’s push for more COVID-19 spending, the measure would not include any of the additional billions in pandemic spending that the president has wanted to include in the plan.

The move was described Monday by people who could only speak on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss it publicly.
