Congratulations- you are getting free vacation time courtesy of the US taxpayer.

You know that in the end, the government workers will get paid in full, whether they work or not, and the US taxpayer will be the only loser in this mess.


Federal workers are also taxpayers. They did not ask for any of this nonsense and are keenly aware of just how wasteful it is.

If you really think that locking out part of the workforce and telling them they'll paid, like, whenever, is just like a "vacation," then complain to your Congressman about it. Blaming the locked-out workers just lets the people who shut down the government laugh at the taxpayers all the way to the next fundraiser.
