    So the fatcat politicians who forced this on the American public still get paid while the average Federal employee working at Yellowstone park loses out on their pay as long as this drags on ?
    This is an unbelievably selfish move by Republicans..all because they are fighting to deny the average middle-income person from getting health insurance?
    What is the technicality that is slowing things up here ?

    The technicality is that the GOP would like it if they could delay important pats of the affordable chair act so that they come into effect 1 month before an election instead on 13 months. Even though the act is funded on the state level and, as far as I know, came into effect yesterday despite the shutdown.


    To be fair it's not like they have a choice in this, they have to be as intransigent as possible or risk loosing their seat. Gerrymandering is a blessing and a curse.

    It's not the GOP as a whole, AFAIK. In fact, most republicans are pretty pissed about this. I believe this is a Tea Party move.

    Just to understand, public sector workers aren't getting paid, and they're not rioting and demanding the government get their shit together? How many of them there are exactly?

    How come the 'House' is considered an essential service?

    Suspend the Representatives pay till the issue is resolved

    I bet the issue would get resolved PDQ

    the house is at least as important as Albertan liquor stores in the eighties.

    Ah yes, the ALCB. More liquor was purchased by underage reprobates during that period...

    Good times.
