deduct it from their accrued vacation/sick leave time if they get paid back pay....they didn't do nothing, so they should have to use vacation pay.

I think it is impossible to stand for that kind of treatment.
No employee of a decent job would put up with such behavior.

i am a federal employee was deemed as a excepted employee, so i have went to work and did analysis everyday since the shutdown. each day i have found myself getting more stressed as it goes on. although i hate that my other co-workers are furloughed, i am feeling some kind of way about them able to get back pay and still be at home and i have to come to work. if the government is going to back them then they should be in there working. not at home.
although i hope this doesn't last much longer because i don't like this much instability in my life, i need to find a job that is going to pay me a check on regular basis until the ones in control start acting like they got some sense.

Blame Obama the idiot for your suffering. He refuses to reach across the aisle, show some leadership and end this shutdown once and for all.

I feel for you, however there are millions of people that lost their jobs entirely, and some their homes because of the same people that that are causing this 13% shut down. Obama is doing exactly as he did for sequester. He is causing the maximum Pain to those that his actions hurt most. He hates the military and America.
