Yes, the military should get paid, of course. These brave, honorable men and women and all genders who serve, are already underpaid. I'm thinking they and their families don't have a lot saved up to live on. Not like our overpaid members of Congress, who continue to get their salaries during a shutdown. Note that a Democrat tried to make it so the military would continue to receive their salaries during a shutdown, and that the Republicans ignored this attempt. President Obama made sure military salaries continued to be paid during the last shutdown.
