Don't worry they will get paid, they have for every single past 'shutdown'

Senate approves backpay for federal workers after shutdown ends

The Senate unanimously passed a resolution Thursday to provide backpay to federal workers affected by the partial government shutdown.

The workers affected are not working but congress is still in session, so they can pass laws to pay for the other government workers.

RE: I will ask again... Why does congress keep getting paid during a shutdown ?
Congress is actually exempt from the laws they pass. That is why they dont get punished for insider trading on wall street. They know who is gonna get the contracts first because they are passing the bills. They know what industries are gonna be adversely impacted because they pass the restrictions. They play the market accordingly. And they dont get in trouble because they are exempt.

Why are they still getting paid? Exemptions to the rules.

These offices uses to be populated by farmers and business men who had already made their fortunes in life but took time away from the jobs that paid more so the could volunteer in office as public servants to do good for the greater good of the nation and the american people.

This has degenerated into life long career politicans that have never known hard work a day in their lives. Just look at jr rep cortez.
