….Not as fun as it sounds though.

Amendment 54-46: Just hours to go before a shutdown

The last government shut down was in November of 1995. When the government shut down in 1995, they still got paid afterwards. However, since there are a lot more people who work for the government, the employees who do not continue to work during the shut down, definitely won’t get paid. Postal service, military, and police officers will still work if the government gets shut down and will get paid in “IOUs.”

“You don’t get to extract a ransom for doing your job, for doing what you’re supposed to be doing anyway, where just because there’s a law there that you don’t like,” the president said.

They may think shutting down the government is a good idea…but it will still cost money to reopen it as well!
