We are in a government shutdown. It is a national shame, that Congress, politicians, would think of not paying soldiers. Men and women who put their lives on the line for them and us. It should be a crime. By the way, your elected officials will be getting paid. It is a bipartisan sham, as so will the President and VP get paid. Please, call your elected official, email them, flood them with your distaste at this recent move. They need to know how fed up we are. I never had a job where the person who employed me gave up their pay and I got paid. That's what it amounts to. They are supposed to work for us! The people lose again.
