TRUMP DID NOT SIGN IT
Your post is wrong. You put it in bold type. Okay, prove it. Show us a link to the CR that Trump vetoed. You can't, because he didn't. Therefore, I have to wonder was your post post a lie or just ignorant? No CR was passed by both houses and sent to Trump for signature. YOU ARE WRONG!

C’mon, dude. You know it was Trump that torpedoed the CR. Just because it didn’t make it to his desk doesn’t make him any less culpable.

The senate passed it unanimously. The house would have been nearly similar. Trump said he would sign it. Then he backed out at the last minute.

It’s all on him. You know exactly what Jenn meant. Trying to split semantic hairs won’t make it any less of Trump’s fault that we are in this position.

She said, in bold print that Trump refused to sign it. You know that was a lie. She knows that was a lie. No bill has been passed. Don’t try to spin it. Her post was a flat out bold print LIE.

But he did......His refusal to sign it is why the house wouldn’t vote on it......a bill doesn’t have to pass both chambers before the president proclaims he won’t sign it.

But Trump, who seeks $5 billion to build his proposed border wall, will refuse to sign the measure without his desired border security measures, House Speaker Paul Ryan said after a meeting with the president on Thursday
“The president informed us he will not sign the bill that came last evening, because of his legitimate concerns for border security,” Ryan said.
Shutdown talks collapse: Trump won't sign spending bill without wall money

That’s not a lie.....that’s exactly what happened

No they are not using a CR even though it had bi-partisan support. Trump changed his mind at the last minute and did not sign it


The GOP-controlled Congress on Wednesday severely undermined President Trump’s drive for a border wall, embracing a short-term spending bill that would keep the government open but deny any new money for his long-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The agreement announced by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) would fund the federal government through Feb. 8, averting a partial shutdown scheduled to take effect at the end of Friday absent action by Congress and Trump.

All these TSA agents are working WITHOUT PAY. Just like Border Patrol Agents and so many other "essential" federal workers are.

They have no idea when they will get another paycheck. So in the meantime, they are trying to find anything that will make them some money - putting our airport security at risk.

Three people have already died in the National Park's because there is nobody on duty.
Your assessment is not entirely true. They are working with pay but unfortunately they will not get it until the shut down is over. When that does happen, they will be paid for every hour that they worked and those that are calling in sick will either have to use leave time that they have earned or they will forfeit those days that are not covered.
