Subject: RE: BS: US Government shutdown
The 27th Amendment, ratified by the states in 1992, guarantees Congressional paychecks till after the next elections for the House. Of course, the primary intent of the amendment seems to have been to keep them from voting raises for themselves.
So the Idiots Responsible lose nothing.
Always assuming there's someone in the Civil Service working who can make the payments!
