The 7 Republicans who voted against back pay for furloughed workers

The House and Senate this week voted overwhelmingly to provide back pay to about 800,000 federal workers who are going without paychecks because of the partial government shutdown.

But seven lawmakers all House Republicans opposed the measure. Those "no" votes came from Reps. Justin Amash (Mich.), Andy Biggs (Ariz.), Paul Gosar (Ariz.), Glen Grothman (Wis.), Thomas Massie (Ky.), Chip Roy (Texas) and Ted Yoho (Fla.).

President Trump on Thursday indicated he would sign the bill, leading to its passage by unanimous consent in the Senate later that day. On Friday, the House cleared the measure in a 411-7 vote.

In 2013, the House approved back pay for government workers in that year's shutdown in a 407-0 vote. The same measure received unanimous support in the Senate.

3. Freedumb Caucus members? They don't like the Government, so they got elected to shut it down?

Their G-D Racist Wall needs to be paid for, and I suspect they have no problems taking it out of the Government payroll. They probably think Government Employees get paid too much to begin with.

over the ACA while having taxpayers funded healthcare for his
Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
