    Their bills don't stop coming in just because the gop chose to screw with their lives.

    Lots of private business people like importers need the government to function or go out of business.
    This one thing at a time crap only makes the pain last longer.

    Will we, the private sector, ever really know the difference? I mean, even when they are working, it's hard to tell that the average government employee is doing anything no anyway.

    So you're saying government workers are too stupid to save for a rainy day? Hell, Fred, hasn't even been a week.

    This shouldn't even be news, this should be required. If they're not getting paid, then where the hell are all of our taxes going from our checks?

    Boehner passed legislation to end the madness, the pygmy rats won't accept it.

    Too bad for the power and mortgage company. Let 'em send the bill to harry reid.

    then go work for a private company. if you don't work you shouldn't get paid--very simple. this is not a charity.
