house Bill H. Joint Res. 31

Avoiding Another Shutdown by Funding Border Security (Including $1.37 Billion For Barriers) & the Rest of the Gov't

Argument in favor

This bill reflects a bipartisan compromise that will keep the government funded through September and provide resources for border security, including the construction of 55 miles of new barriers. It’s not perfect, but it’s the best Congress can do.

Not paying Homeland Security is a huge mistake. Holding their paychecks hostage some of the best are going to quit. Bills continue even when income stops. When Homeland Security starts leaving National Security is compromised. It's like removing all the doors on your home leaving everything inside unguarded.

Of course, my indicted tRump loving congressman (Chris Collins R-NY) voted no, because he doesn't give a shit about real security, all he cares about is that his tRump-God gets his wall, that he promised Mexico would pay for. Open the damn government, suck it up and forget the medieval wall that everyone knows is a dumb idea.

Argument opposed

This bill doesn’t provide enough funding for border security. Alternatively, it shouldn’t allow for the construction of any new barriers on the U.S.-Mexico border. Congress shouldn’t pass a nearly 1,200-page bill less than 24 hours after introducing it.

NO WAY ON THE PASSING OF DEMOCRATIC H. JOINT RES. 31 NO This bill doesn’t provide enough funding for border security. Alternatively, it shouldn’t allow for the construction of any new barriers on the U.S.-Mexico border. Congress shouldn’t pass a nearly 1,200-page bill less than 24 hours after introducing it. Rather than wasting time on the House floor debating & voting on a short-term funding bill that will never become law, Democrats should negotiate with the Trump administration to reach a solution on border security funding that the president’s willing to sign into law. SneakyPete......... 👎🏻🙈🙉🙊. 2*13*19.........

Wall = Government. The Dems will NOT “consider it later” when you have no leverage. It’s THEIR people not getting paid. You could lay them all off permanently and I would not care. There will be 500 people to apply for each downsized Department when they rehire. $5b is spent on Pelosi’s plastic surgery. Build the wall.

    I would rather the whole shutdown end and everyone go back to work. The wall is a boondoggle and holding people's salaries hostage over it is an outrage.

    Refusal to reopen the government for Trump’s temper tantrum over a wall that can have tunnels dug under it is despicable. How many hardworking patriots have to get food from food pantries? How many people have to plead and get denied extensions on power bills and rent before hypocritical so-called Christian GOP reps and senators actually follow Jesus’s teaching to love neighbors and care for the poor. I hope my three hateful, selfish Georgia professional extortionists lose next time they run.

    You voted Nay to reopening the government? Why? Wrong choice for the country. Congress and the President need to stop using business closures as a bargaining chip. Y'all need therapy!

    Fund the government, THEN negotiate border security. The two are not inextricably linked.

    Keeping count Dejarles. I believe that this is the 10th time you have voted to let government employees starve so Trump can have a vanity project. I am counting, recording, and will make sure everyone I can reach will know what you are doing on the taxpayers dime. And on February 14th, the day of love, you do it again.11 no votes! Are you representing Trump or the citizens of your district?

    Unfortunately, the Coast Guard is under HS instead armed forces. So, they are without paychecks, too. That’s disgraceful.
