Getting Paid

While over 800,000 government workers are now furloughed, including Congressional staffers, and almost all the government workers, including Congressional staffers, won't get paid through the furlough, all the members of the House and Senate will get paid as "essential" government employees.

Really, the people who voted to shutdown the government still get a paycheck. It's why they can stand in front of all those microphones and rail about "the government", forgetting they're also part of the very same government, they're getting a government check!
