house Bill H.R. 195

Funding the Gov't Until February 8, Extending CHIP for 6 Years, and Delaying Obamacare Taxes

Argument in favor

This continuing resolution is needed to keep the government open while Congress negotiates a long-term deal. It also wisely reauthorizes CHIP for six years to provide healthcare for children, provides funding for the military’s missile defense activities, and lengthens delays to several Obamacare taxes.

A few deplorable Republicans started a trend of threatening shutdowns unless they got something unrelated added to the bill. Time for Democrats to be the adults in the room and end this trend.

Argument opposed

There comes a time when Congress has to stop kicking the can down the road and do its job. While the bill at least reauthorizes CHIP, the government should still shutdown because this bill does nothing to address the status of the so-called Dreamers or provide a full year’s funding for the military.

Children's health insurance isn't a political bargaining tool and six years isn't enough. It's cheaper for the government to reauthorize CHIP for ten years and a clean Dream Act is a moral imperative.

It is APPALLING that the Republicans have done more procrastination and kicking the can down the road under a Republican President than under a Democratic one! They JUST chose to increase our deficit by $1.5 trillion to give their rich donors (and themselves) needlessly big tax cuts, and yet that they have a hard time to find the money for a full 10-year funding of CHIP and a fair DREAM Act? This is BS!

Shut it down. Shut everything down. You're (correctly) worried about deficits in light of the tax cuts? Then don't raise the debt ceiling. Don't perpetuate the cycle. End it here.

    Congress just keeps kicking the can down the road again and again. We just keep moving from one manufactured budget crisis to another and we always assume that next month Congress will get its act together and it never does. Pass a real budget that actually funds the government for an entire year! And stop holding DACA children hostage!

    Fund the government for another 4 weeks while Congress negotiates a long-term deal? Really? WTF happened to the time between Sept 30 and Dec 19? Or the time between Dec 19 and Jan 19? Are the American people to believe you just need 4 more weeks to get your shit together? Sorry, I am not buying it. I am also not buying a CR that drastically changes the way the Affordable Care Act was designed. In case members of the House have forgotten, conveniently I am sure, the purpose of a CR is to CONTINUE funding the government at current levels until, again, you can get your act together. They should not be used to bribe members of either party to go along with your irresponsibility by including issues unrelated to CURRENT government spending. If the GOP-led house can't govern and keep the lights on in DC, maybe it is time to replace them all - either through term limits or elections.

    It’s time for Congress to stop kicking the can down the road. Fund the government. Pass a budget funding CHIP and DACA. If the government shuts down, it’s on the Republicans. Once again, Democrats have had no say in the construction of this bill.

    I’m not much for CR’s. But I am for our military. In the past Pelosi and Schumer blamed a shut-down on the GOP saying it was legislative arson and created chaos. Now they CHOOSE DACA over our military and blame the GOP. Shame on them! There’s isn’t even a looming deadline for DACA—we have until March 5th on that one. So while DACA is being negotiated (still) in good faith, and the house has passed all 12 appropriation bills which sit in the Senate not being passed, but instead being filibustered by the DEMS, they demand DACA get amnesty or the military won’t get paid and children’s healthcare will suffer. You libs, Nay on 6 yrs vs 10 for CHIPS—again you’d rather have no loaf of bread vs half a loaf...and which party you claim cares about children? DACA is NOT a moral imperative; protecting our country and those whom serve that function is. Having said that, with the 12 appropriations in order, House and Senate stop the madness, after this CR, and pass a budget. NO more kicking the can down the road, we’ve run out of road and the sane citizens have run out of patience. Unless of course you are talking about the Progressives whom will see everyone hurt to garner future voters by importing immigrants—legal or not—and whom will resist this President at every turn. Me thinks they would have seen King Solomon cut the baby in half and smiled gleefully!
