Do NOT pay the government employees for the time off during the shutdown again (as in 1995.) That just costs the government more money than keeping it open , not less, and it makes the shutdown very unpopular. That came out a bad surprise in late 1995 and soured the who episode.
If you are going to shutdown the government , at least save money.

shut it down permanently. we would all be better off. the things our government should be doing is not done very well any how. all the other things that people have become so dependent on them to do, they shouldn't be involved with any way. force people to start learning how to take care of themselves.

Shut it down if wed have to. It’s time to call the leftists in government out. They couldn’t/didn’t/wouldn’t give us a budget for almost a year and we are sick of their childish, political attitude. Call them! Shut the sucker down. Hurry 2012!!!

And yet Congress, deeming themselves exempt of their own laws, will get their pay on time and in full.

It would be disastrous as when they shut down for one of their multitude of vacations.
