house Bill H.R. 265

$23.2 Billion in Funding For the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Rural Development, and Conservation Programs

Argument in favor

This bill would fully fund the Dept. of Agriculture, which is currently affected by the shutdown, through September so that it can carry out its programs for agricultural research, food safety, rural development, and nutrition.

Yep! Disconnect the DHS argument from the unrelated departments. Get the government open and stop holding nearly a million civil service personnel and their families hostage!

Immigration is a separate issue. Deal with it without hostages.

Argument opposed

While this bill may be bipartisan, it has no chance of becoming law unless a deal is struck on border security. Congress should focus on reaching an overarching funding compromise.

Stop all subsidies. If I want to give my money to a business or corporation or industry, I'll do it myself in a voluntary transaction. Government exists to force people to fund things they wouldn't deem valuable (or to prevent you funding things you would).

Lets stop funding this stuff! Let’s balance the budget and pay off the debt. Let’s return to the gold standard. Let’s have money that’s really worth something. Let’s stop foreign aid. Let’s take care of our citizens. Let’s stop giving money to countries that don’t like us. Let’s stop giving money to anyone that is not a citizen. Let’s not pay the Congress if they can’t pass an annual balanced budget. Let’s secure our borders. Let’s move toward term limits. Let’s pray for one another! Let’s respect our elected officials. We can be better as a country if we just take care of our own business and stay out of others business. The government that governs least, governs best! Ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country!

    Please for the love of God reopen government and give relief to farmers suffering from Trump’s tariffs. Stop treating people’s lives like game pieces.

    USDA and these other branches of government shouldn't be held hostage by the president's stupid demands. Open up the government, give back pay to the workers, and refuse to fund the wall. And abolish ICE while we're at it.

    We need the services these agencies provide. The federal employees that work for the people of America aren’t being paid. Remember the GOP and trump are being paid to sit on their backsides, not working for America.

    Pass funding for government in these separate bills. NO WALL! Vastly too expensive & ineffective for 21st century. Smart Border security measures, Yes. Trump = an ILLEGITIMATELY, ILLEGALLY “elected” CON MAN who cannot be believed.

    Once again, government is useless to its citizens when it is shutdown. Besides the loss of national security, we also lose those services that we have paid taxes to have. Please pass a budget that allows our government to operate for the people.

    Yes, food safety is rather required, as are the other programs at stake.

    We need to have the Dept. of Agriculture fully funded because the safety of all our food products is at stake. No border wall is work sickening millions of people.

    Fund border security. 23 billion in discretionary funds? Several areas for compromise in my opinion

    While not an answer to the main problem, this would reopen one department, and ensure that those on food stamps don’t become hostage in this ridiculous shut down.

    Of course the Democratic congress would vote to approve BILLIONS of tax payers dollars to fund something other than the wall. Pelosi's puppets just following suit right? Some of the spineless Republicans need to stand behind the elected president. FUND THE WALL!!!!
