IIRC Federal employees are paid once a month on the last day of the month. Everyone has promised that they will receive back pay when this is over, so unless this shutdown extends to after Halloween, no Federal employee will lose a dime.
Obama has ordered everyone to make this shutdown as painful as possible to the taxpayers, but this will probably have no effect at all on all these “poor” Government employees.
I think that like the military they can opt for a monthly or a twice monthly paycheck but I’m not sure.
My sense is that Obama Inc. wants to make people mad at the GOP so he’ll do all he can to make everyone hurt that he can.
He’s an evil man. Fast and Furious and Benghazi prove that.
