The House’s $1.4 Trillion Spending Deal

The House’s $1.4 Trillion Spending Deal

$1.4 trillion is a significant amount of money. Apparently, that’s the amount of money it will take for the United States to function for the rest of this year and through the majority of 2020. It’s more money than what will actually be brought in through taxes, which is why the federal deficit is about to grow. The only positive takeaway with the whole ordeal is that the government won’t have to shut down as it has in years past.

The House is controlled by the Democrats, which is why they have approved so much in federal spending. They’re a lot more liberal about a lot of things, including how money is spent. They’re not too concerned if it adds to the federal deficit because the Democratic Party has a long history of contributing to it instead of helping it. Even the current Democratic candidates for the presidency aren’t talking about the deficit.

The bill was approved as a way of avoiding the government shutdown. Some of the funding provides for a border wall. They also strip the Affordable Care Act taxes, raise the minimum age for the purchase of tobacco products, and give Dems everywhere money for a variety of domestic programs. These programs are concessions that the Republicans had no choice to make in order to avoid a government shutdown. Additionally, since the Dems control the House, there wasn’t a whole lot that could be done in general.

While the House is dealing with the impeachment of President Trump they have also approved all of the 12 spending bills that were in front of them. The bills will be sent to Senate later this week in order to get the final mark of approval.

Nita Lowey, the chair of the House Appropriations Committee, announced that she’s proud of being able to come together for a bipartisan agreement and negotiate through some of the differences. She’s hoping that the investments will strengthen the nation and provide Americans with a better chance “at a better life.” While it is a bipartisan agreement, particularly in regards to giving Trump money for the border wall, there are still a number of things that favor Democrats as opposed to Republicans in the approved bills.

The White House has already identified the Trump will be signing the measure. This will ensure that the government is kept open, according to White House advisor Kellyanne Conway.

A number of add-ons were included over the weekend to include a permanent repeal of attacks on various health insurance benefits and pension benefits for retired union coal miners. Taxes on various other things will be repealed permanently as a result of the new bills, too.

The deficit for the bill package will be growing tremendously as a result of $428 billion in tax cuts over the next 10 years due to the various Affordable Care Act taxes being repealed.

Based on all that was passed, it’s very obvious that there is a division in Washington. The Republicans stood strong on various abortion-related battles as well as funding the border wall. Meanwhile, Democrats were able to win a 3.1% raise for federal civilian employees as well as funding for gun violence research.

The House Rules Committee had a marathon session to ensure that the bills were passed. It also enabled them to focus on the articles of impeachment against Trump – which resulted in a vote to impeach.

While it’s a good thing that the spending bills have been passed to avoid a government shutdown, all could have gone a lot better. Both sides had to concede a bit to avoid shutting down, which means that the federal spending package is far from perfect. What makes the $1.4 trillion spending package that much harder to stomach is the fact that there are billions of dollars’ worth of tax cuts – something that the House Dems insisted upon in order to get everything passed.

Once Donald Trump is able to sign off on the spending bills, it will provide the necessary funding for the government to operate until September 30, 2020. At that point, it will be necessary to start everything all over again. As to how that will go, it is all dependent on who has the power.

Right now, we have to prepare for tax cuts, a lot of spending (some of which are in the wrong areas), as well as the deficit to grow dramatically. The Dems will simply blame the growing deficit on Trump as he has become their scapegoat for all that goes wrong on Capitol Hill.

  1. Increasing the federal debt beyond what can be repaid is unconscionable. A major reason for NOT voting in a democrat for president was promised fiscal restraint by the republicans. In spite of the rhetoric of the so-called conservative party, our children and future generations are being saddled with burgeoning unsustainable debt. The greatness of our Republic is being eroded by fiscal wantonness of politicians whom seem to believe in Santa Claus and the tooth fairy. For all the purported benefits this country has attained by this president, I feel, the greatest danger is the irresponsible spending that is being instituted. Perhaps the country needs to emulate the Jewish custom of debt forgiveness and then reduce our government and its profligate monetary policies to an extended period of austerity in keeping with realistic boundaries.

  2. How can we “have a better life” when the FEDERAL DEFICIT and FEDERAL Spending is out of CONTROL? . . . Doesn’t anyone realize that this money has to get paid BACK?!? Who is going to PAY for all of this (rhetorical question)? We need HARD answers to these HARD questions . . . Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  3. since we the citizens are not getting all that money and running the deficit up I think the democrats should be paying all of the money back out of their own pocket.just like all of the witch hunts they want to have they need to be using their own private money to run them.bunch of bullshit they get a raise like that when they don’t do a damn thing for anyone except themselves and family members.since they all are involved with the scandals going on in Ukraine it’s about time to start prosecuting them and locking them all up and throwing the key away. All the dems are nothing but liars you can’t believe a word any of them says

  4. As British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher,(since has passed on), says that when you have spent all of every tax payer money and it is gone forever. you will need to spend someone else’s money, find it.

  48. Cuando se nos pregunta qué clase de tiendas online frecuentamos en internet, la mayoría de nosotros respondemos las clásicas; es decir, las tiendas de ropa, por ejemplo, especialmente aquellas que venden ropa muy exclusiva que no se encuentra fácilmente en ninguna tienda de a pie; las de electrónica, videojuegos y chismes de segunda mano en general. Se entiende por decoletaje al proceso que implica la fabricación de piezas de revolución, como tornillos y bulones. INTEGRACIÓN de las dos empresas en un mercado cada vez más exigente con la calidad, el servicio y la competitividad en los precios. Sin la mecanización a través del decoletaje de precisión sería mucho mas lento todo el proceso de fabricación.

Le explico que eso no es justo ( a todo esto las llamadas al servicio de reparación son a un , que me ha salido la broma por casi 25 euros, sin comentarios… ) que la lavadora nunca ha estado bien reparada y me dicen que lo siente mucho pero que la unica opción que tengo es volver a pagar el arreglo suscribir el seguro, nada más. Es seguro que, si no recibo una respuesta correcta a esta queja, nunca más volveré a comprar un electrodoméstico AEG ELECTROLUX. Llevamos desde el Jueves pasado( día 22 ), hace ahora 11 días, sin lavadora, con la ropa mojada y sin que el servicio técnico aparezca por aquí para solucionar el tema.
