house Bill H. Joint Res. 27

Should Agencies Impacted by the Partial Shutdown Reopen Thru February 1st?

Argument in favor

This government shutdown has gone on for far too long, and reopening the government for the rest of the month could lead to a deal being reached on border security funding.

Open the government and sue the trump administration for ANY and ALL expenses incurred during the shutdown and any incurred cleaning up as a result of the shutdown.

At the least pass funding to PAY the people working. I am not in favor of a wall. I think it is the absolute dumbest idea ever. How about we pass a bill for the wall and fund it 100% from a tax increase on the top 1% AND we provide citizenship for dreamers AND we have a plan for 100% single payer health care system as a compromise?

Argument opposed

This bill has no chance of becoming law. Rather than taking a show vote on a short-term funding bill, Democrats should negotiate with the Trump administration to reach a deal on border security funding.

No temporary measures! It is time both Democrats and Republicans put the safety & security of the American people above drug king pins, international cartels, cheap labor lobbyists and human traffickers. Fund border security now!

As expected, Representative Steve Cohen follows the Democratic brainwashed party political mandated B$...... It’ll come Back to haunt them come election time in 2020. No Way Soon Folks......On Re-Opening the Democratic Shutdown. This is just another Democratic ploy to divert attention away from their unwillingness to compromise to resolve the issues getting a new budget passed. This has shades of the many years of “Kicking The Can Down The Road” rather then working towards a better solution ‘ This bill has no chance of becoming law. Rather than taking a show vote on a short-term funding bill, Democrats should negotiate with the Trump administration to reach a deal on border security funding. SneakyPete.......... 🤔👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻🤔. 1*14*19........

What is House Bill H. Joint Res. 27?

This bill would fund agencies impacted by the partial government shutdown by funding them through February 1, 2019. The lapse in funding began on December 22, 2018 and affects agencies funded under the seven following appropriations categories: Agriculture; Energy & Water; Financial Services & General Government; Homeland Security; Interior & Environment; State & Foreign Operations; and Transportation, Housing and Urban Development.

Impact

Agencies impacted by the partial government shutdown.

Cost of House Bill H. Joint Res. 27

A CBO cost estimate is unavailable.

More Information

In-Depth: House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita Lowey (D-NY) introduced this bill to reopen the government through February 1, 2019, and offered the following statement:

“Now in its 24th day, the Trump Shutdown is creating pain and misery for families, businesses, and communities across the United States. The House has done its job and passed six pieces of legislation to reopen the government, but Senate Republicans refuse to take yes for an answer and end the shutdown. It is critical that we reopen the federal government, and these two new Continuing Resolutions offer President Trump and Senate Republicans additional options to end the shutdown while allowing time for negotiation on border security and immigration policy. We should pass them into law without delay.”

President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) have said that no funding bills will become law unless the $5.7 billion border security funding request is included.

    Stop this nonsense and run the government. That’s what you were sent there to do! Open the government permanently, not just until February, and then talk to each other about the border security, without a wall! I am a republican and I live in Arizona. The very terrain makes a physical wall ridiculous and impossibly expensive and there are far better modern surveillance and capture methods. Drug dealers just tunnel under the walls that do exist. One of the last tunnels found was 20 feet underground! Do you have any idea how expensive it would be to extend the wall 20 feet underground? Then they would just tunnel 30 feet under. In addition a wall does not even address the major way illegals enter which is overstaying visas. It would make more sense logically and economically to develop a visa tracking system. This fixation on a pysical wall is archaic and just plain dumb! Stop the lying fear mongering and get in the current century!

    Re-open the government now. What kind of President does this to his country’s own government? His own people? I’ll tell you. Someone who is beholden to a foreign power, trying to weaken America and sow division among our people. Trump’s a traitor. It’s not just this shutdown, but also the trade wars, the making enemies of our allies, the pulling out from strategic geopolitical areas leaving allies high & dry. Domestically, the hollowing out of our government, installing people who’s ethos is antithetical to the missions of those agencies. He is also pushing for removing sanctions from a Russian Oligarch’s business. It’s all nuts that we have an entire political party going along with this bullshit! Damn the Republican Party!

    There are families who are struggling to afford to live right now because of this useless wall. Not to mention the services that are being impacted - housing security for low-income families, food safety, etc. Reopen the government and let the people affected receive back pay.

    Holding the federal government (and all the people affected) hostage to get an inadequate amount for an alarmingly ineffective vanity project is wholly the GOP's fault. They had two years of majority control to get this done and could not get their own party to back it. It's a toss up as to who is more to blame: Trump for pulling a bait and switch over a truly unnecessary project, or McConnell for letting the Executive branch determine what the Senate will do instead of holding it accountable as is their Constitutional responsibility.

    Is border security what we've really decided to prioritize when there's been vast division in our country? The adverse effects of the government shutdown will trickle down and impact other sectors in this country; not just Government Employees. Though, is it necessary for those who do their due diligence in making sure checks and balances are in place, for our government, suffer without pay? The potential impacts to increases in credit use, home buying/selling, and unemployment speak volumes to what this administration is willing to sacrifice to satisfy a few.

    As a federal worker impacted and who doesn’t agree with the border wall- they need to reopen the government and continue talks about improving the border using technology. Those who are saying keep the government closed don’t have a clue on the impact it has on the economy. WE ARE NOT BEING PAID and we are working for FREE! No one would want to work for free! Mortgages are being missed, and childcare is going unpaid. Federal workers have nothing to do with a president campaign promises and no one should lose their home because of it either. There should be a compromise, but it doesn’t take closing the government to get it! The longer this drags on the higher unemployment rates go up, because people will file for unemployment. The housing market could show some negative impacts if people start to lose their home.... Just put yourself in someone else’s shoes.

    Reopen the government permanently without the wall! A temporary reopening with a February 1 shutdown date is stupid. It’s people in your district who are affected by the results of Trump’s temper tantrum. Do your job and represent your district, not your constituency of corporations and wealthy donors.

    The government should reopen, permanently. There’s no negotiating with Trump. The House and Senate should negotiate amongst themselves. Bypass the Orange bowel obstruction!
