House votes to reopen Treasury Dept., IRS
By Juliegrace Brufke - 01/09/19 05:16 PM EST

The Democratic-led House approved a bill Wednesday to reopen the Treasury Department, Internal Revenue Service and Small Business Administration, among other federal agencies.

The chamber voted 240-188 to advance the measure, with eight Republicans bucking party lines to back the bill, which is the first of four bills expected to be brought to the floor by Democrats.

The Republicans who voted to advance the measure Wednesday included Reps. Elise Stefanik (N.Y.), Will Hurd (Texas), Fred Upton (Mich.), John Katko (N.Y.), Brian Fitzpatrick (Pa.), Greg Walden (Ore.), Adam Kinzinger (Ill.) and Herrera Beutler (Wash.).

Senate Republicans assert they will not take up any spending legislation to end the partial shutdown unless President Trump has agreed to sign it.

The odds of a shutdown ending anytime soon appeared to worsen on Wednesday, with Trump and Democratic leaders ripping each other after a meeting at the White House ended abruptly.

Trump said Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) refused to consider his demand for money to fund construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, a major sticking point in negotiations.

Democrats stressed on the 19th day of the shutdown that they will not support any legislation that provides the $5.7 billion requested by Trump for the border barrier.

Trump has repeatedly said he won’t sign any spending bill to reopen about 25 percent of the federal government unless it provides the wall funding.

Democratic leaders have called on the president to support legislation to reopen other areas of the government ahead of attempting to tackle funding for the Department of Homeland Security.

Top Democrats argue Republicans are holding the government hostage over the border wall while Republicans allege Democrats are playing politics and failing to negotiate in good faith.

Democrats saw a slight uptick in Republican members willing to support a clean bill after just seven GOP lawmakers voted last week in favor of a spending package aimed at funding the bulk of the remaining agencies through the end of the fiscal year and five Republican members voting in favor of a continuing resolution to fund DHS through Feb. 8.

I hope it's not lost on people that they aren't voting to fund DHS.

They might as well have elected the democrat in TX 23. Will Hurd is a problem.

If the Senate doesn't kill it, Pres Trump will veto it. 

My $$$ is on the him to keep his word. 

He'll own the shut down, but by then he'll call it a National Security matter and he'll get his wall ...on paper.

Who cares who owns the shutdown.  The ONLY thing that matters is that the American people get their wall...and not just on paper.
"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

Hasn't anyone clued in that the House can vote all day long on whatever they want and it goes right to the dead letter office. They have no power and they can't do a damn thing.

Interesting that of all the agencies they could worry about, it's the IRS/Treasury.

They want to let their Free Shit Army know that they are doing everything possible to get them their welfare checks.

It was a poor attempt at self-deprecation.

Like Rush Limbaugh, I too, live in Realville.  Figuring it would take years to get thru the law suits.

By that time the Elephant will die a death of a thousand bites and the Left will control both Houses or worse.

That's why it's so important to continue the shut down after the national emergency is declared. Until construction is going along and all opposition is over Trump can't let up. If he does the wall won't be built.

We are in an all out war with an enemy who has no integrity, so nothing they promise can be trusted.
