    Good. Now if the Republicans want any funding for things like National Parks or Monuments, tell them to reopen government. The votes are there for the Senate's bill in the House. All they have to do is put it up for a vote.

    With this bill no reason not to open the government They are going to get their back wages so no reason for none of them to go back to work


    At last, the White House and Congress have agreed on something.

    For the first time since mad-dash negotiations over the budget on Monday, the White House announced Friday that it would support a House spending bill -- this one, to provide back-pay for furloughed federal workers.

    "Federal workers keep the nation safe and secure and provide vital services that support the economic security of American families," the White House said in a statement. "The administration appreciates that the Congress is acting promptly to move this bipartisan legislation and looks forward to the bill's swift passage."

    There's nothing in your link that says the NIH is going to be funded.
