house Bill H.R. 3354

The $1.23 Trillion Omnibus Spending Bill for Fiscal Year 2018

Argument in favor

This spending package provides the resources needed to secure the border, and provide for a variety of federal programs ranging from food stamps to public housing to transportation infrastructure. It needs to be passed so ensure federal agencies have the resources they need.

Time to make America Great Again. Build the wall, cut taxes and spending. Do no raise the debt ceiling. End DACA.

You live in a border town, have a young man shot in front of your daughter at H.S., your Uncle in Agua Prieta,AZ, beat up & stolen from(he was 3rd generation rancher) by illegals and see how your mind set changes. This is what President Trump ran on, this is what Americans voted for (albeit CA the other 3rd world country I moved to from AZ)) All of you saying no not w/my tax dollars, well think of where your tax dollars would be if you had elected Hillary, certainly not staying in the U.S. maybe paying back George Soros?

We are indeed a nation of laws...so why are we allowing law breakers the benefit of living in America? Are you too afraid to act?

Argument opposed

This spending package cuts funding to many vital programs such as the EPA while providing $1.6 billion for a wasteful and unnecessary border wall. It also will destabilize health insurance markets by directing the IRS to not enforce the individual mandate.

Do not spend one single cent of my tax dollars on a border wall. It would be an environmental disaster. It also is a "solution" without a problem....a complete waster.

We ahould expand the EPA and just fix our immigration laws with a path to citizenship and save our good money for other needed programs, NOT A STUPID WALL!

The border wall will NOT prevent people from entering the US. It will just take funds away from other important projects. And even more so, we should welcome people from outside the US to help build our communities.

    This wall was a promise from a man I didn't vote for, to be paid by a people he promised wouldn't pay for it, and will add nothing but trouble for this country's economy and relationship with Mexico

    Please don't vote for any funding for the border wall. We need to focus on education, infrastructure, climate science, etc. All of those vital things are receiving cuts with this bill. I also think reducing funding for WIC and Medicare/Medicaid is cruel. This bill makes America decidedly "not great."

    Don't waste my tax dollars on a WALL. Protect us by keeping the EPA. We need an agency that protects our drinking water, the air we breath and the soil our food grows in. Also keeping the ACA.

    Spending tax dollars on a boarder wall is wasteful and unnecessary. Those tax dollars should be used to rebuild Houston, repair our bridges and roads, support a better rail system, fund the ACA, improve our public education system, etc.

    While many parts of this legislation are positive, these appropriations bills should not be lumped together. We need to separate them out and have individual debate and voting processes - as it stands, one must either accept the bad with the good or say no to everything good to avoid the bad. Separate bills would be much more effective at creating ideal legislation.

    No tax dollars should be used for this wall. The president promised a wall that would not be paid for by the citizens of the USA. If it can't be paid for without tax dollar, there should be no wall.

    No wall. No cuts to program funding. More money to programs. Money for Texas relief needs to be a separate bill.

    The wall is a boondoggle. Real people are suffering in the country that funding the wall will only exacerbate.

    Do not allow this man to spend one penny of our tax dollars. He has already appropriated far too many of our tax dollars. With billions of dollars being spent on a wall, we know that Trump would get kickbacks in the millions or billions.

    Even if I agreed with the ideas behind a border wall (which I don't), a literal border wall is not the way to accomplish this sort of security. This project is a shameful wate of resources and money.
