1. yep they get theirs no matter what. was having a conversation with my sister
who works for the IRS the other day. now, she watches faux news and I find it kind of funny because she works for the federal government, but.... anyway... she was talking about the freeze in her pay and they get step increases every so many years and such and they aren't going to even get their COLA. but the congress will make sure THEY get paid no matter what happens. and that is true. And they get their health insurance and pension.... what other place do you get health insurance for life!! and they leave and go get cushy jobs working for the people they were supposed to be regulating. It's sickening.

2. Yes, the last guy said it best. It's all about *them*. They'll still get paid, they'll still have
benefits, & they don't care how a shutdown would affect our lives. Again, it's all about *them*, playing a game of "Chicken" with our lives.
