(TargetLiberty.org) – On Monday, the GOP-led House had voted in favor of a number of bills that would put Iran in a financial tight spot following the unprecedented mass-scale missile and drone attack against Israel over the weekend. 

The House voted on the three separate bills that had been brought forward on Monday through an expedited process that required the bills to gain the support of two-thirds of the House to pass. The suspension of the rules process allowed for the floor votes to take place quickly.

The bills are looking for financial penalties to be imposed on Iran in order to block the Islamic country from supporting its proxies. 

On Saturday night, the United States and other allies assisted Israel in repelling the aerial assault by Iran, managing to shoot down around 99 percent of the close to 300 missiles and drones that had been fired. 

The bills that were voted on gained the support of many Democrats as they don’t include any controversial provisions. One of the bills is looking to put an end to nonprofit organizations’ tax exemption if they are found to have supported exemption groups. The legislation is also looking to disrupt the Chinese purchase of petroleum and oil products from Iran, while also blocking access to the U.S. financial system for the Iranian government. 

However, even though the Democrats supported these latest bills they have continued to criticize the House GOP for not holding a vote on the $95 billion national security supplemental bill, which would provide aid to Taiwan, Ukraine, and Israel.
