Seven R's voted NOT to pay workers for labor owed?
This bill assures backpay for all federal employees, not just those that were excepted and working, so I can at least see how some conservative ideologue or libertarian might rationalize voting against it. Definitely not a good look though. Although I think it means excepted workers don't get anything "extra" on top of the regular pay for having worked during the shutdown.

Rep. Matt Gaetz has some reservations: "I don’t want the next national emergency to be that some Democrat president says we have to build transgender bathrooms in every elementary school in America" https://www.wsj.com/articles/white-...ng-army-corps-funds-to-build-wall-11547161664
I think mos Republicans know that if this "Emergency" pandoras box is opened, the next Dem president will use the precedent and get them all pretzel-twisted.

We already have transgender bathrooms though.

They’re called “bathrooms”
Silly GOP. We don't want to build transgender bathrooms. We want transgenders to use the bathroom matching the gender to which they identify.
In California, the gender signage has been removed from single occupancy public restrooms. The practical effect? ACCESS TO TWICE AS MANY BATHROOMS!!!

I wish they'd done this years ago.

Something something but kavanagh. And yes, I have actually seen arguments critical of Anderson Cooper for taking a shot during NYE and how it was terrible because of how attacked Kavvy was for drinking in high school.

Following the thread, it looks like the beer was from South Carolina, and someone noted craft brewers are having problems due to the shutdown.

A Fox Outnumbered host just asked, twice, what if @AOC jumps into the 2020 race for president.

No one corrected her and noted she’s not old enough to run under the Constitution.

Gaetz also blew up both the potential WH legal defense of a national emergency (by using state regulations and building codes as a counter-example to a national border requiring use of eminent domain), and the rationale for calling a national emergency:

"If we call a national emergency based on our phobias, the Democrats might also call a national emergency based on our phobias!" Logic fail.
