If, instead of the military and "nonessential" services employees, congress wasn't paid during a government shutdown, we wouldn't be in this situation. They shouldn't be paid in any case; they're not doing their jobs.

I’d assume mms knows whether or not her husband gets a paycheck. My father works for USACE and he kept going to work without pay during the 2013 one. He was just steamed but said that he’d be returning to a big mess if he took the time off. Very stressful time at work for him. He had to send some folks home and then he couldn’t tell the people who stayed when they could pay their bills. So I think tourists’ photo ops rank pretty low on the list as concerns for the affected parks and monuments.

Dukey--Geez, what is wrong with you?! First, you would be wrong. And second, we have been trying to get an answer on this and have been finding mixed results.
