i just saw something about this on reuters, and i had a thought..

if the government can't gets it's collective kaka together well enough to work together, and there really is a 'shutdown', how about we prorate their pay for the time they government is offline?
after all, they are paid to be the government, right? if it is 'shutdown' then they aren't doing their job, are they?

if you took off work for a few days because you had an argument with a co worker, would you get paid?
i don't see any reason these fat bloated windbags should be paid for not doing their jobs either.

but that's just me.

I think that They should go to just meeting six Months out of the Year, they only work usually 2 days a week now, they are not going to do anything but spend Money, and they could do all the business we can afford in six Months.

According to the latest poll, over 50% of Republicans, over 60% of Teabaggers want a shutdown. So much for their claims to support our troops. In a shutdown the soldiers keep fighting and dying. They just don't get paid. This is the way the Teabaggers plan to win the next election.

That which is asserted without proof can be dismissed without proof.. Thanks jimmy, that was easy.

How will a shutdown affect your disability payments?
Payments for SS, Medicare and other benefits don't stop. They didn't before and they won't this time.

But I don't receive any so it's not affecting me anyway.
I hope they shutdown too. During the shutdown of 1994, all the fedgov employees got a paid 3 week vacation. My neighbor is a real rocket scientist and the shut down, even for 1 day, will mean the process that he has been working for months will have to be restarted from scratch, costing at least $5million to replace the test articles. I wonder if that fact would make Boehner cry?
I would think that since the Messiah picks and chooses 'essential' employees, that project would count.
