Macaskill democrat who voted with republicans and maybe some others tired to pass military spending bill after the shutdown .

McConnell said no. It all looked procedural to me. I didn't see him say fuck you anywhere .

1) I do!
2) Don't know, but I suspect it is different for different groups of workers. No way any impacted contractors are getting paid without working or burning vacation.
