Should federal employees furloughed by the shutdown receive back pay for their time off?

Jack Hickey - you're asking idiots to think the big picture (ie.. the Republicans in the House.)
Not going to happen.
"You can't explain it very well" to constituents, conceded Senator Jeff Flake, an Arizona Republican. "It doesn't make any sense. I didn't agree with the shutdown in the first place."
But, he said federal workers should still get paid.
"We caused this headache. It wasn't them," Flake said. "We ought to make them whole."
What are they about, their nest tee time?
"We caused this headache." Flake said.

Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) was quoted last week by Roll Call saying the budget stalemate "isn't some damn game."
National Review quotes Boehner telling GOP members this morning he wants something that "puts points on the board."
This is all about John Boenher saving his job from the Tea Party idiots.

Jack Hickey - You are correct, America is slamming the Republican Party. For context, see the graphs that track changes over the decades, and then focus on the current numbers.
In a word - toilet. Web Link
From the fairly GOP-friendly Gallup (friendly per the 2012 election): Republican Party Favorability Sinks to Record Low --- Falls 10 percentage points from September's 38%
This is a disaster in the making. Like watching a slow motion train wreck. And the democrat party is just sitting there saying: "oh, please, be my guest, go right ahead and destroy yourself"
