house Bill H.R. 648

Reopening Agencies Affected by the Shutdown (Except Homeland Security) Thru September

Argument in favor

Congress has a constitutional responsibility to fund the government and this bill reflects many of the provisions that passed the Senate with overwhelming support in the last Congress. Leaving funding for Homeland Security out of this bill allows negotiations over border security funding to continue.

Fund the government agencies and pay people who work. Then take time to devise a bipartisan comprehensive immigration plan.

This is a good way to address the situation. Makes more sense than shutting the government down. The senate needs to pass this & to get the people depending on the government for their livelihood their money. Then work on border security.

Argument opposed

The House should focus on reaching a deal to reopen agencies affected by the government shutdown that funds Homeland Security and includes funding to secure the Southern border instead of debating and voting on a bill that will never be signed into law by the president.

DEMOCRATS...... JUST PASS THE BARRIER / WALL FUNDING NOW. This is nothing more than a Democratic of getting their way or no way. I also like and recommend what President Trump has proposed! It should be Bipartisan! SO Quit holding 800,000 Americans for hostage on something you can end. It is no longer a Trump SHUTDOWN it is a Pelosi/Schumer SHUTDOWN and it’s up to them to get off of their fat behinds and act to pass the Barrier / Wall funding. The House should focus on reaching a deal to reopen agencies affected by the government shutdown that funds Homeland Security and includes funding to secure the Southern border instead of debating and voting on a bill that will never be signed into law by the president. SneakyPete.......... 👍🏻JUST DO IT👍🏻. 1*22*19..........

Homeland security should be opened for the sake of TSA and other LEO who are going unpaid. No funding for the wall.

    Release the over 800,000 hostages now! Allow them to get back to work and to get paid. It’s interesting that no one who supports The Wall has even mentioned the ginormous lie told by the Bozo-in-Chief, that ‘Mexico will pay for the Wall”. Instead, #45 continues to use taxpayer dollars as his personal ATM. Keep your candy #45. Tell Vlademir that his plan to create chaos is over!

    Yes, definitely. There’s no reason all these agencies should be used as bargaining chips. There’s only one agency that Congress can’t agree on. Split that out and let the others move forward.

    Trump & McConnell must NOT BE REWARDED for holding 800,000+ Americans HOSTAGE for a vanity project campaign promise that they could have dealt with any time in the past 2 years! Acquiescence to Trump’s demands for a wall or withholding opening government would be THE WORST PRECEDENT for future “negotiations” about anything! McConnell should stop holding Senators hostage by refusing to bring up bipartisan agreed-upon legislation. Senators should man-up & pass the bill they recently passed without wall funding, to OVERRIDE the promised presidential veto.

    Holding people hostage to get your way is terrorism. This administration is morality and ethically bankrupt. Stop the madness.

    We must not legislate by shutting down the government to get what one wants. This sets a very dangerous precedent in government. Open the government, the legislate. This bill does what the majority of Americans want.

    These staff need to return to work because the government doesn’t function with so many missing employees. It’s a horrible mess.

    It’s about time. The shutdown is nothing more than the temper tantrum of a 72 year old toddler. May he find solace in knowing how many innocent lives he messed up since December last. May the toddler in chief sign off on this and may McConnell keep his mouth shut and allow the senate to vote on it.

    Republican duplicity is screamingly open and blatant. Trump cannot be trusted to do what is right for the United States. He openly worships and does the will of Vladimir Putin. Mitch McConnell has $2.5 million in his campaign chest from Oleg Deripaska so he is also beholden to the Russians. The NRA has admitted they funneled Russian money to Republican campaigns. With those credentials Trump and the Republicans cannot be trusted to honor any agreements. Reopening the government needs to be permanent and complete or not at all. It would be ironic if the efforts of a Republican President to hold the nation together through the Civil War were subverted by the divisive and destructive behavior of another Republican President.
