house Bill H.R. 266

$35.8 Billion to Fund National Parks, Land Management Agencies, and the EPA

Argument in favor

This bipartisan bill would fully fund the National Park Service, other federal land management agencies, and the Environmental Protection Agency for the rest of FY2019 — all of which are currently affected by the partial government shutdown.

The government serves the people. It should do so all day, every day. I would like to see a bill to keep this kind of ridiculousness from ever happening again.

Now this makes a whole lot more sense than building a wall. Helping people vs. harming people. What happened to the golden rule. Please don't let the Trump affect turn you into a scrooge.

Trump and the far right have held the government hostage for their stupid vanity project. Our national parks need to be cleaned up, repaired, and maintained after all the trash that has built up. The EPA needs to be refunded so that we can continue to protect our environment! This country doesn’t need protection from immigrants. We need protection from our insane President!

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 its time and effort on reaching an overarching funding compromise.

Protect our borders! Stop trying to get around the shutdown! Fund the wall and then fund everything else as needed. Do your job and protect our country!

No, you give me my money back, and then I will decide how worthy each agency is of my money based on how much I value the good or service they offer. Just like I do with every transaction in the free market. I don't need you stealing my money and then spending it for me. I'm quite capable of doing my own spending.

    Open the government. I have family who work for the park service who aren’t able to pay bills because of this shutdown. Don’t hold these families hostage over a debate that has nothing to do with them. You have to resort to these slimeball tactics because you lost the election and now can’t get your wall. It’s time to respect the will of the people and how they voted in 2018. You’ll need to regain the majority in 2020 and get enough seats in the Senate and win the Presidency in 2020 to get the Wall you so badly want.

    Please reopen the government. A wall isn’t worth this. You can squabble about border security while still keeping the government funded.

    Can we bypass impeachment and just go straight to trump, his family and some of the republicans to jail! This shutdown is a political stunt To distract the Americans, at the federal and subcontractors employees expense. This is nothing but BS. There is no reason for this shutdown, the art of deal is nothing but lies! It should be called corrosion, extortion and intimidation, gee sounds like the Russian mob. There is no Negotiation. Trump doesn’t know how to Negotiate. If you think these people deserve this, you are as sick as trump, but that is how he treated his employees, just look at this turn over in the White House and the investigation into his paying the immigrate that work for him or the lack of. He did care about the employees that work for him in the private sector and he definitely does care about government employees or you.
