I care...but not for myself. I'm one of those people who are not going to be paid but still expected to work since I'm mission essential. I have money and I do not care if I get paid late. I will get back paid so that's not an issue. The main problem that I have is that the men and women overseas fighting the wars will not get paid. Those people are expected to continue to risk their lives not knowing when they will get paid again. Talk about destroying any motivation they had. I am not okay with this.
With all the petty bickering...if no budget is in place. They still get paid but the troops do not.
