This compromise spending package provides the resources needed to strengthen the military, secure the border, and provide for a variety of federal programs ranging from food stamps to public housing to transportation infrastructure. It's not perfect, but it's the best option at our disposal to keep the government open.
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. Pushing a 2,200+ bill on short notice is bad policy.
