BREAKING: House passes bill to pay federal workers who are furloughed during government shutdown: http://t.co/GjYIXOnczm -AB

Ok, the Republicans who control the House decided to shut down the government unless a budget was passed that defunds Obamacare. When that didn't pan out (which everyone predicted) they now want to spend taxpayer dollars to pay all of those government employees who haven't worked? So the public is deprived of services but at no tax savings?
Ronald Reagan is rolling over in his grave.
