Earlier today, House Republicans offered a bill to pay federal workers during the (very) partial “shutdown” that is now going on. Democrats voted it down. So much for their crocodile tears over the plight of the small minority of government workers who have been furloughed. Guy Benson comments:
Why did House Dems kill a GOP effort to pay federal workers during the partial shutdown? An aide called it a 'stunt' & 'distraction.'
Translation: We love talking about those folks, but getting them paid would hurt our leverage, so the pain must go on. https://t.co/6rySipgiLX

Personally, I’m not sure it’s all that much pain, but, whatever. My wife spent the day at a church meeting where a minister offered a lengthy prayer one of whose petitions was on behalf of “TSA workers.” TSA employees, the new heroes of the Left!
