I don't care so much about normal "non-essential" Government employees getting paid, I hope they do get paid if this thing reaches a swift and reasonable solution! But the rich law makers who can actually pull this off are definitely getting paid, and don't need it!!!! Seriously, Wake Up People! Can we make our voices heard in real life? Or, have we furloughed ourselves from rational thought amongst what we believe Government is?!
This is ALLEGEDLY, "A government of the People, by the People and for the People..."
We are the people! So stop reading this and go be people!
