The U.S. can’t afford to have military operations be affected by a government shutdown. Men and women involved in such operations should be fully compensated for their service and not be affected by partisan squabbles.
As federal employees, military personnel should be held to the same standards as any other government employee and exempting them from the consequences of a shutdown would make shutdowns less politically costly.
