Wasn't back pay always a part of whatever deals they were working on? I know that doesn't help when you actually need a paycheck, but I wouldn't think they could get away with expecting people to work for nothing.
As for reaching a deal, it's one we all lose. Real recovery will be painful for all of us, but it seems there are a majority of people that don't understand that or don't really care. Kicking the can down the road is not a solution. These are manufactured crisis to molest the system. It's disgusting.

anon, it's both sides that were too rigid to deal. But keep believing the PMSNBC talking points that it was all the GOP.
Real recovery is going to hurt. There is not enough money to borrow our way out of the financial mess our elected officials keep making worse. Eventually the money runs out or you can't borrow any more. Then what? Those non-essential jobs are going away forever and in a worse economy. Government hasn't lived within it's means as they preach to the public to tighten their belts. You first, government.
