This is a big "Duh." If someone is working, pay them. Shouldn't be government shutdowns in the first place. Stop partisan bickering, stop taking 4 day weekends to prevent a bill from being voted on, stop acting like spoiled 6 year old brats (my apologies to actual 6 year olds everywhere) and lock yourselves in a room until you pass an actual budget instead of all these CR's. Or all of you resign and let us elect actual adults who understand how to collaborate with one another.
