Government Shut Down

1. Does anyone give a shit?

2. Are furloughed workers required to take vacation during the shutdown in order to be paid or do they just get paid anyway (i.e. not required to use vacation)?

If it works like other furloughs I have seen, they just get paid anyway. No PTO needs to be used.

Read a headline (didn't have time to click on it, gone when I did) that some senators tried to pass a bill to guarantee military pay and death benefits during the shutdown and McConnell told them to fuck off. Any truth to that or is that liberal spin?

That was stated in Schumer's speech this morning, but hard to know if it is true. My guess is that isn't the whole story and the truth lies somewhere between all the rhetoric.

Here is my question - who is going to get blamed for the shutdown. Trump?

I figured as much, which is why I asked before getting out my pitchfork and torch.

Well there you go. Is this Trump taking the heat for the Democrats and the Republicans? Had to laugh.

It's classic how the Gop, and Dumpster are blaming the Democrats in 2018.. Here is the clip of Trump in 2013 of him blasting Obama when the govt shut down.

Classic oops and foot in mouth moment for Donny T.
