It looks like everyone is on the same page. A group of Republicans voted along side the Democrats to pass spending bills to help temporarily fund broken agencies. Some of these agencies include the Food and Drug Administration, the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Department of Agriculture.
This agreement comes 20 days into the partial government shutdown issued by President Donald Trump. The passing of these bills are steps towards reopening the government. Many people took to Twitter to express their thoughts and opinions on the passing of these bills. Take a look below.
House has passed two more spending bills to reopen government.
10 R's voted for the Ag spending bill.
12 R's voted for the Transpo/HUD spending bill.
Slightly higher defections than on past couple votes.

I just voted to pass spending bills for @USDOT, @HUDgov & @USDA. These are about safe aircraft, safe food & housing vouchers for low-income families. They have nothing to do w/ a wall & shouldn't be held hostage. The Senate should pass them so we can end the #TrumpShutdown.

Reopening the Department of Housing and Urban Development ensures people living in housing supported by HUD aren’t evicted. #EndtheShutdown
